[HOCKEY] Friday, Oct. 19, Saturday, Oct. 20

Big-league hockey may be locked out again, but the minor-league game skates on. And if you haven’t been to a Wranglers match, it’s a big, goofy spectacle: action, screaming, implied violence. Also, there’s some action on the ice. But the real fun is outside the rink. Hometown fans pound on the glass, scream at the other teams and — it wouldn’t be hockey without it — abuse the refs. The season-opening two-nighter against the Stockton Thunder is a great chance to see what you’ve been missing. 7:05 p.m., Orleans, 4500 W. Tropicana Ave., www.lasvegaswranglers.com, $20-$40
