Today is the beginning of the Frozen Four, the biggest three games of the college hockey calendar. While Boston College will not be competing in the Frozen Four, the games still will be interesting to watch. Here’s how you can see this year’s Frozen Four.
All of the games will be available on ESPN2 on cable or on WatchESPN. John Buccigross will have play-by-play, and Barry Melrose will be the analyst, despite other, more qualified college hockey analysts being available. John Brickley, Sean Ritchlin and Dave Starman will host studio coverage. ESPN will also have its Ref Cam feed available on WatchESPN. The ref cam feed will have natural sound from the arena.
The Frozen Four will be broadcast on the Westwood One network, and on westwoodonesports.com. Brian Tripp, Pat Micheletti and Shireen Saski will have the call. For local broadcasts, check out the Ohio State feed (Ohio State Buckeyes Radio Network), the Michigan Feed (Michigan IMG Sports Network), the Minnesota-Duluth feed (102.5 Duke FM) and the Notre Dame feed (Notre Dame IMG Sports Network).
Minnesota-Duluth will take on Ohio State in the first game Thursday evening, which will start at 6 PM EDT. The second game, Michigan v. Notre Dame, will take place at roughly 9:30 PM EDT, but it is subject to the ending of the first game.
