    2012 Frozen Four: Union vs. Ferris State; Minnesota vs. Boston College

    Well, this should be another great end of the year.

    We have the ECAC Champion against the CCHA Champion, and the WCHA Champion against the Hockey East Champion.

    Who says that the regular season doesn't matter?

    Good luck to all four teams, and congratulations on making it to the Frozen Four!

    BC has quietly morphed from a potent offensive powerhouse into a stingy defensive one. Were we just dreaming up that BC-needs-a-goalie controversy from mid-season?

    I can't wait. I'll be down in Tampa, and I didn't think I would be watching the Gophers there. Obviously, Minnesota will have to play the best game they have this season to take down BC. Cripes they look scary good.

    Good thing maroon, garnet and crimson don't look anything alike.

    It's also cool to see the four biggest hockey states represented.

    To be honest, I just wanted to post in a Frozen Four thread for the first time.

    Interesting mixes. Is it true no NHL draft picks in the Union, FSU match and plenty in the BC, Minn?

    Union and BC are the top two defensive teams in the country. Ferris and Minnesota are also in the top 8.

    BC and Minnesota are also among the top scoring teams. I like them both to adv . . . err, wait. Never mind.

    On the plus side, the brackets ensure that we will get a MN-BC game at the FF. Can't complain about that.

    Correct. 0 for Union and Ferris combined, 26 combined for BC/Minnesota.

    Seconded on wanting to post in Frozen Four thread... as a supporter of an actual frozen four team for the first time!

    I think the fact that Ferris and Union made it this far is a testament to their teamwork. You can have NHL worthy players and not succeed, you need a team effort to win in the long run (Minnesota and Boston college are examples of teams that have both).

    All four of these teams have worked hard to get here. It will be exciting to see how it plays out.

    Re: 2012 Frozen Four: Union vs. Ferris State; Minnesota vs. Boston College

    How would one suggest getting Frozen Four tickets that aren't at the top of the arena? I always said that the only way I'd pay a ridiculous amount of $$ for the frozen four is if Union made it, and somehow, some way Union has made it so I cannot miss this.

    Is each school given a block of tickets to sell? Forgive me for being very naive with this whole process. Never thought I'd be attending this.

    I believe that the Minny/BC game is the de facto title game with apologies to the folks in Schenectady and Big Rapids.

    Hope I am wrong.
