'Diggers host North Stars tomorrow night

With only one day remaining in 2007, the Alpena IceDiggers will play host to the Traverse City North Stars one last time during the calendar year. Faceoff is set for 7:00 p.m. inside Northern Lights Arena tomorrow night.

The IceDiggers are coming off a much-needed seven-day break where most, if not all, the players returned to their hometowns to celebrate the holidays with their families.

Traverse City has played three games since Christmas Day and dropped all three to the Marquette Rangers.

"We are going to have to jump on them early as they have not had much success the last few games," Alpena coach-GM Kenny Miller said. "But they will come ready to play, so we will have to be ready."

In Alpena's last game before the break, the IceDiggers recorded a 3-2 shootout loss at Traverse City. It was the IceDiggers' first shootout of the year.
