After months of games and regional tournaments, it's finally time for the NCAA Division I college championship beginning today in Boston. The Frozen Four is one of the annual highlights of the hockey calendar and this year features the following teams:
Omaha vs. Providence, April 9, 5 pm
Boston University vs. North Dakota, April 9, 8:30 pm
The winner of each game will meet in the final on Saturday, April 11, at 7:30 pm for the National Championship.
What's great for Canadian residents is TSN's coverage of college has been increasing over the past couple of seasons. This year TSN covered the regional tournaments. Canadian hockey fans who wish to watch the Frozen Four are in luck as all three games will be available on TSN2.
