NCAA Hockey Tournament: Frozen Four Bracket And Schedule

The 2011 NCAA Hockey Tournament, more commonly known as the Frozen Four, will be played at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul from April 7-9. After a wild weekend of hockey, the field is set, and we know which teams will be vying for the National Championship. Here is the schedule.

Thursday, April 7:

Minnesota-Duluth Vs. Notre Dame, 4 p.m., ESPN2:

Minnesota-Duluth advanced to the Frozen Four with a (somewhat surprising) 5-3 victory over Yale, the Tournament's top overall seed. They got three power play goals in that game to help them advance. Notre Dame advanced with a 2-1 win over New Hampshire on Sunday. This is Notre Dame's first Frozen Four appearance since they were beaten by Boston College 4-1 in the 2008 National Championship game.

North Dakota Vs. Michigan, 7:30 p.m., ESPN2:

North Dakota showed that they will be a force to be reckoned with in this Tournament with a 6-0 victory over RPI on Saturday, and a 6-1 win over Denver on Sunday. Michigan had a 2-0 lead over Colorado College in the third period, and was able to hold on for a victory to advance to this stage.

The finals of the tournament will be played on Saturday, April 9.
