Boston is the ideal city for the NCAA Frozen Four tournament. This wildly enthusiastic hockey town demonstrates its passion year in and year out with devout fanship for the Boston Bruins NHL franchise and a collection of local Division-I hockey programs.
As of now, Boston University, Boston College, Northeastern, and Harvard all sit within the top 25 of NCAA Division 1 Men’s Ice Hockey rankings. Each of these local teams competes in Boston’s annual Beanpot Tournament, a nationally recognized and historically relevant college hockey event in Boston. This season’s Beanpot tournament provided a nailbiter of a championship game, with Boston University beating Northeastern in overtime of the tourney’s finale. The density of nationally ranked competition in Boston is unmatched, and those figures don’t even include nearby UMass Lowell, currently ranked 16th in the nation.
What all of these figures come down to is that it’s very likely a hometown team will compete in this year’s Frozen Four Tournament, happening right here at the TD Banknorth Garden. The proximity and familiarity between the fans and the athletes on the ice will promise an incomparably electric viewing atmosphere. This extraordinary competition will be perfectly accommodated by a proven and beloved host venue.
TD Garden is a short walk from the Boxer Boston, acting as home to the Boston Celtics and Bruins along with hosting large-production concerts and shows. With the Frozen Four fast approaching, people who plan to visit Boston this April should look into tickets soon. The competition will be fierce, the crowd will be jacked up and it will all happen right here in Beantown.
