Frozen Four Semis...DROP THE PUCK!

After a weekend off, College Hockey returns to the big stage this weekend at the Pepsi Center in Denver for the Frozen Four. Sure the Badgers aren't there, but why not compile some links about the semifinal games tomorrow evening.

For the record, I'm cheering for North Dakota. Sure I don't like Joe Finley or TJ Oshie much, but they have a great team and w/ all the talent they have they should get over the hump (aka Boston College) this season, and take home the National Championship. On top of that, they are the last WCHA team standing. I'll cheer for anyone from the WCHA except the rodents. The last thing we need is another CCHA team winning the Crown, and talking up their conference like it even compares to the WCHA.

Enough of my blabbering, time for some links.

"The Kohl Center announcer had to remind Wisconsin fans not to throw objects, like coins onto the ice surface. Honestly, it’s something hockey fans shouldn’t have to be told. Please stick to hats in the future, Badger fans."
