41. The number of consecutive 20-win seasons by the four teams in the Frozen Four. 29 of those are on the opposite side of the bracket, with Denver and North Dakota having 15 and 14, respectively. Boston College has had seven consecutive 20-win seasons, while Quinnipiac's achieved the feat five straight times. The last time Boston College did not have 20 wins was 2008-2009, when they had 18 wins and lost to Boston University in the Hockey East semifinal. It was also the last time BC did not make the national tournament.

18. The number of NHL teams with draft picks in the Frozen Four. Chicago, Florida, New Jersey, and Ottawa will want to pay special attention to the Frozen Four, since they have three prospects apiece playing in Tampa.

25. With this trip to Tampa, Boston College took the lead for amount of Frozen Four appearances, moving one in front of Michigan, who lost to North Dakota in the Regional Final. The Eagles and Fighting Sioux/Hawks have 47 Frozen Four appearances between them, with UND's appearance this year tying Boston University for third all-time with 22.

63. The amount of Frozen Four appearances between all four teams, with Denver appearing in their 14th. Quinnipiac is appearing in their second Frozen Four.

50%. Winning percentage of national championships in trips to the Frozen Four by Denver, which is best among participants. The Pioneers have seven national championships, second best in college hockey (tied with North Dakota) and two behind Michigan's nine. BC comes in at about 20% with five titles in 24 previous appearances, while NoDak is slightly better at 33%. Quinnipiac is 0-for-1.

23. NCAA Tournament appearances by Jerry York.

9. The amount of NCAA Tournament appearances by the other three coaches combined.

13. The amount of Frozen Four appearances by Jerry York.

4. The amount of Frozen Four appearances by the three other coaches combined. Despite all of the experience at the universities, this is the first FF for Jim Montgomery and Brad Berry at Denver and NoDak, respectively. Rand Pecknold is in his second trip.

227. The amount of points scored by the senior classes combined of North Dakota, Quinnipiac and Denver. North Dakota's senior class leads the way with 79 points, and both Quinnipiac and Denver's senior classes scored 74, with Qpac's getting the edge in goals (34 to Denver's 26). North Dakota's seniors combined for 40 goals this season.

28. Points by the senior class of Boston College. The Eagles' seniors have 15 goals and 13 assists on the year.

286. The amount of points scored by the freshmen classes combined of North Dakota, Denver and Quinnipiac. North Dakota's 120 points is helped by a nation-leading 60 goals, while Denver's 42 goals help them to 102 points. Quinnipiac's freshmen have done the "least" scoring 64 points.

132. The amount of points scored by the freshman class at BC. The Eagles were 12 better than North Dakota but they had 33 more assists with 93 total.

200. Points from Boston College's junior class, which included a nation-leading 130 assists. Once again though, BC did not lead in goals scored in this category, with 70 goals from the class falling short compared to Quinnipiac's 72 among Frozen Four participants.

95-0-9. The combined record of all four Frozen Four teams when leading after two periods of play.

4-16-8. The combined record of all four Frozen Four teams when trailing after two periods of play. Think having that lead is important or what?
