2018 Frozen Four: Scores, schedule, live updates for NCAA Hockey Tournament on Thursday 2018 Frozen Four preview: Players to watch, keys for each team,
The connections between the four teams set to play in the men’s Frozen Four semifinals are undeniable, starting with Thursday night’s first game between Ohio State and Minnesota-Duluth.
The Bulldogs, last year’s national runner up, needed significant help to get into the NCAA tournament. The last domino to fall was actually a Notre Dame overtime victory over Ohio State in the Big Ten final. That allowed the Bulldogs to sneak into the last at-large spot, thanks to a RPI rating .0001 better than that of University of Minnesota.
