Blaine forward Cole Hansen (18) celebrated with his teammates forward Cole Hansen (18) and forward Bryce Brodzinski (22) after scoring on White Bear Lake goaltender Evan Foss (33) in the second period Thursday.

A 45TV anchor apologized Thursday on behalf of the station after a prominent sports analyst referred to "lynching ropes" while calling a game in the Minnesota Boys' State Hockey Tournament.

Doug McLeod, the University of Minnesota play-by-play announcer at Fox Sports North, had been invited back to the 75th annual high school hockey championships at St. Paul's Xcel Energy Center with a group of fellow broadcasting veterans.
