Crews are busy making ice nice
When most Tiger hockey fans come back to Schmitz-Maki Ice Arena for the first games of the 2010-11 season, they really won't notice anything different.
The colors are the same inside. The words "Home of the Tigers" are still spelled out of the far wall. The bleacher seating will still be, well, bleacher seating.
They'll notice the new dasherboards around the ice. Those will be a sign improvements were in fact made to the arena during the off-season.
