It's finally here. After a season of buildup and anticipation, it all comes down to this for the Boston College women's hockey team, as they take their #1 ranking and perfect record in to the Frozen Four with hopes of making their first national championship game and ultimately lifting the trophy.
Here's your game day info.

All three games of this weekend's Women's Frozen Four will be streamed live via NCAA.com. Link here.
#1 Boston College Eagles [39-0-0] vs. #5 Clarkson Golden Knights [30-4-5]
Game Time: 4:00 PM
Radio Info: The Boston College IMG Sports Radio Network will broadcast BC's game, with play by play by veteran BC hockey announcer Tom Grace. Tonight's game will be broadcast on the radio dial on 1550 AM WNTN in Newton. The radio broadcast will also stream on BCEagles.TV and the TuneIn Radio App (search Boston College Radio Network).
Storyline: To get to their first championship game, BC will have to go through the only Eastern school ever to win a National Championship in Clarkson. Clarkson has been known for their smothering D, shutting out host Quinnipiac in a 1-0 battle last weekend in the NCAA quarterfinals. Can they keep Carpenter, Skarupa & co. off the board? Or will BC be able to get over the hump and set up a date with destiny?
#2 Wisconsin Badgers [35-3-1] vs. #3 Minnesota Golden Gophers [33-4-1]
Game Time: 7:00 PM
Storyline: These historic rivals will clash once again with a spot in the national title game on the line, as they did last year. And there's really no way to pick one or the other as the favorite. Wisconsin features Ann Renee Desbiens between the pipes, who is having perhaps the best season any goalie has ever had at this level; Minnesota is bolstered by the amazing return of Amanda Kessel after concussions sidelined her for over a year. This one should be a barnburner.
