Omaha Lancers Hockey

Feb. 18-19 Omaha Lancers Hockey Friday vs. Green Bay Gamblers, Saturday vs. Lincoln Stars Omaha Civic Auditorium, 1804 Capitol Ave. 7:05 p.m. both nights, $14-$16, 800.745.3000, lancers.com. In their 25th season on the ice, the Western Conference-leading Omaha Lancers have provided entertainment for hundreds of thousands of area sports fans. They’ve inspired countless kids to lace up their skates and take up the great game of hockey (yours truly included) and sent their top players into the collegiate and minor league ranks, including a lucky few into the National Hockey League. While the names and faces have changed over the years, the rivalries remain the same, including a cross-division skate Friday night against Eastern Conference leader Green Bay and Saturday night donnybrook against arch-rival Lincoln. Perhaps no rivalry in the United States Hockey League is as fierce as the battles between the Lancers and the Stars. The teams have combined for 245 penalty minutes through the first five games against each other this season, with another two on tap after this weekend.
