Boston College To The Frozen Four: Wrap Up Links

Waking up on Easter morning to cold temperatures and clouds? Don't worry about it because a TRIP TO TAMPA is coming.

The Golden Eagles (28-7-5) reached their record 25th Frozen Four. They won the last of their five national titles in 2012.

Major points off for calling BC the "Golden Eagles." There should be a requisite dollar fine attached to that.

It was not the easiest of playoff runs for York and the Eagles as they endured a three-game quarterfinal series with Vermont in Hockey East before a semifinal loss to Northeastern.

When the tournament becomes national, it's all about taking it one game at a time. And that's exactly what BC did.

In all fairness, the entire playoffs are about one game at a time, but there's a grossly thinner margin of error in the single-elimination games. Either way, it's a great day to see BC going back to Tampa, isn't it?

It was Boston College’s 14th all-time win in 15 NCAA tournament games in Worcester. The Eagles have now won the last six Northeast Regionals at DCU Center, which is just a short drive from their campus.

Think about that for a second. 14 wins in 15 games in Worcester, and six straight Northeast Regionals won at the DCU Center.

We'll probably come back to that multiple times this week, but that's something to marinate on. If you can think of a comparable home field advantage in a neutral site, please let us know in the comments section.

As the officials emerged from the scorer’s box and gave an explanation to the team captain, Doherty leapt in the air, which triggered BC players pouring from the bench to meet goaltender Thatcher Demko.

There were a ton of reviews in this postseason, it seemed, but none felt better than that last one.

The Eagles are now 14-1 here at the DCU Center, and this is BC’s sixth consecutive trip to the Frozen Four when they have been placed in this regional.

See you in Tampa.
