The conference tournaments are behind us now, so now the last leg of college hockey is upon us: the NCAA’s Frozen Four tournament.
Brackets were announced this morning. Here’s where the Flames kids, including Johnny Gaudreau, fit in.
The #2 overall seed, Boston College opens on Saturday against the University of Denver in Worcester’s regional bracket. The winner of that game faces the U-Mass Lowell/Minnesota State winner on Sunday. Bill Arnold and Johnny Gaudreau won the NCAA Championship two years ago but lost in regionals last year.
The Friars play against Quinnipiac on Friday in Bridgeport, CT’s regional bracket. The winner faces the winner of Union vs. Vermont on Saturday. It’ll be the first Frozen Four experience for John Gilmour, Mark Jankowski and Jon Gillies.
Tim Harrison’s crew lost in the ECAC Championship game on Sunday, but they’re in the big dance. They play in Cincinnati’s regional bracket and play Ferris State on Friday. The winner gets the winner of Wisconsin/North Dakota on Sunday.
