While the rivalry might not be what we all remember from Disney’s Miracle, college hockey fans are sure in for something special with a matchup between the No.1 Minnesota Golden Gophers (28-9-1) and the No. 5 Boston University Terriers (29-10-0).
On Thursday, April 6, The Boston University Terriers and Minnesota Golden Gophers will face off for the early semifinal match, with puck drop set for 5:00pm. The Wolverines and the Quinnipiac Bobcats will provide the nightcap.
After a dominant 5-1 victory over one of the highest scoring teams in college hockey, the Terriers will now face a familiar foe with a chance to punch their ticket to the Frozen Four.
The Terriers are officially dancing. It didn’t take too much time early on this season for that to be a foregone conclusion, but a Hockey East Championship last Saturday confirmed it. Under 24 hours later, the Terriers’ matchup was made official during Sunday night’s NCAA selection show.
With Bostonians celebrating St. Patrick’s Day on Friday, The No. 5 Boston University men’s hockey team hopes that their third trip to TD Garden will be the lucky charm. At 4p.m., the Terriers will face the Providence College Friars in the Hockey East tournament semifinals.
The No. 5 Boston University men’s hockey team (24-10-0, 18-6-0 Hockey East) will take on the University of Vermont Catamounts (11-19-5, 5-16-3 HE) in the Hockey East quarterfinals in their last game at Agganis Arena this season.
