Surge releases 2012-13 hockey schedule

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

The off season started for the Mississippi Surge with talk about a permanent power outage.  But, season ticket sales saved hockey in South Mississippi.

The talk then turned to the team's nickname.  But, that scuttlebutt ended when the SPHL franchise determined the Surge was the right name for the Biloxi hockey team.

With all that behind the team, the focus can turn to on ice issues.  For instance, today the Surge released its 2012-13 regular season schedule.  The season starts on Saturday, October 27, when the Pensacola Ice Flyers invade the Mississippi Coast Coliseum.

According to a news release from the Surge, the team will play 21 of its 28 home games on Fridays, Saturdays or Sundays. There are also two Tuesday and Thursday dates, and three Wednesday home dates for the Surge at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum.

Pensacola will visit the Surge six times, the most of any opponent. Those two teams will play a total of 12 times, and the Surge will also play the Louisiana IceGators a total of 12 times, (five home and seven away).

On two different occasions, the Surge will have three game homestands, and will have two five game road trips. Seven times this season, the Surge will play three games in three days.
