Duncan Keith Fondly Remembers the “Cold War” Battle

from Brian Hedger at NHL.com:

His first game for Michigan State University came against arch-rival Michigan in a game dubbed “The Cold War,” played in front of 75,000 people at Michigan State’s Spartan Stadium. It was also an unseasonably cold night with temperatures in the low 30s, but Keith was feeling cold sweats before the game regardless.

“It was kind of a crazy way to start your college career,” said Keith, who scored his first collegiate goal that night. “It was exciting, but I was just a young guy going in there. You better believe I was nervous.”

That game, which finished in a 3-3 tie, set the stage for all the outdoor games played since—both in the NHL and college. In fact, the Spartans and Wolverines will play a rematch Saturday night in Ann Arbor, Mich., at the sold-out, 110,000-seat Michigan Stadium. This game is being called “The Big Chill at the Big House,” and it brings back fond memories of the “Cold War” for Keith, who will root for the Spartans on Saturday as he prepares to play the San Jose Sharks on the road that night.
