High school hockey fans react to MSHSL tournament live stream issues

A brief stream issue meant fans missed part of Wednesday's first Class A quarterfinal between Luverne and Hermantown.

The Rink Live

ST. PAUL — The Minnesota state boys high school hockey tournament got off to an inauspicious start Wednesday as the KSTC 45TV live stream did not go live as expected.

When fans tuned into the stream, available online for free for the duration of the tournament , for the start of the Luverne-Hermantown matchup at 11 a.m., they were treated to a loop of the week's broadcast schedule — but no game.

As might be expected for a group of fans clamoring for tournament action, the responses were cool and collected.

Or not.

Luckily the problem was solved in the final few minutes of the first quarterfinal's first period and fans were able to get back on the air.
