    Well, also to show discretely the division between the Boston and Minnesota players. It also sets up the scene outside the bus, with OC, Mac, and Rizzo arguing the late addition of Harrer (?) as disrupting the "family" they'd become.

    (Interesting note about that scene during intermission in the Sweden game: Mac didn't really understand why Brooks acted that way...until he saw the scene in the movie.)

There have been a lot of OT games, so some of those will obviously be in there, but do any stick out more than others? Any spectacular plays? Great storylines? Shocking moments? Feel free to list as many as you want. Thanks in advance.
    So, did you ever write this article? I ask because the NCAA posted their own top 10 of the past 25 seasons before this year's Frozen Four.

    The top 10 Frozen Four moments of the past 25 years.
    The top #FrozenFour moment of the past 25 years features the greatest comeback in history as @TerrierHockey scored twice in the final minute of regulation to tie it and then in OT to win it in 2009.
    Moment No. 2 - The first trip to the Xcel Energy Center brought one of the greatest games in Frozen Four history as @GopherHockey scored with less than a minute remaining in regulation to tie it and the in OT to win it.
    Moment number 3 features current @DetroitRedWings​ star Justin Abdelkader scoring with less than 20 seconds remaining in regulation to give @MSU_Hockey the national title in 2007.
    Moment No. 4! @BCHockey wins its first NCAA title in 52 years after seeing North Dakota tie the game with less than a minute remaining in regulation in 2001.
    Moment No. 5! @DU_Hockey survives a Maine shooting gallery as the Black Bears had a 6-on-3 for the final 90 seconds of the game to win the 2004 #FrozenFour, 1-0.
    No. 6 - @BadgerMhockey held off Boston College by literally inches in 2006.
    Moment No. 7 is clearly one of the most dramatic in #FrozenFour semifinal history! The amazing end to the 2014 Minnesota-North Dakota game.
    For the No. 8 moment, we flash back to 2011 and the last time the #FrozenFour was in Saint Paul and @UMDmenshockey beat Michigan in overtime.
    The No. 9 moment of the last 25 years features @DU_Hockey's Jarid Lukosevicius scoring a hat trick in the 2nd period of the 2017 final, which included 2 within 16 seconds, the fastest back-to-back goals by the same player in title game history.
    No. 10 - Current @NHLFlyers Shayne Gostisbehere posting an incredible +7 in @Unionmhockey's 7-4 victory over Minnesota in 2014.

    Their top 6 all happened before 2010 and it would be interesting to compare them with your choices.

    The NCAA seems to have listed the top 10 moments of the last 17 years. So nothing happened at the FF between 1994 and 2002?
    What about the most thrilling OT (triple OT to be specific) game I've ever seen (college or pro) when Maine's Blair Allison and Michigan's Marty Turco battled it out in the Semi-finals in Providence? That was the very first FF game I ever attended and was immediately hooked.
    Can't we all just get along?
    Always remember... This is just a game we're talking about here. Let's not take it all too seriously.

    Sounds like the NCAA just picked the top moments from championship games in the 21st Century, and tossed in one semifinal game for reasons.

    It wasn't in The Frozen Four but this should still get an honorable mention...

    Re: Greatest Moments in Frozen Four History

    One memorable Frozen Four (well, it wasn’t called the FF back then!) was back in 1985 when both semi-final games went to triple OT.
    Providence beat BC on Thursday night and RPI beat Minnesota Duluth on Friday. Talk about free hockey!
    Of course, OT periods were 10 minutes at that time and they didn’t resurface until after the 2nd OT. Can you imagine if both games were played on the same night?

    Why, because the ref didn't do his job, and blow his whistle for carrying the puck?
    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXXXX


    The reason for the talent in the west? Because MN didn't rely on Canada.

    Legg's hand/glove never touched the puck.

    I don't know the rule book as thoroughly as I used to, but where does (or did) the rulebook say what Legg did was against the rules? He definitely moved the puck towards the net and didn't do it with anything other than his stick. I would think if that were clearly against the rules, it would have been easy enough to point out the specific violation.

    This is the first time I've ever heard that the play was a violation of any kind. I said when it happened, I would've challenged the stick. It's probably legal, but would have been worth it for the opposing coach to ask.

    Happy is just mad because Legg did it to his team....

    That was my 1st Frozen Four. Missing a few, this year will my 17th.

    After reading these posts, there have been so many great finals and semi-finals in the past 20 years.
    This one had to be there. Our only Championship, but it was one heck of a game.
