The Moment You've All Been Waiting For; or The Frozen Four Championship

Precious little time before the puck drops, so jump ahead for the skinny.

Boston University wasted little time Thursday night against Vermont getting out to a 2-0 lead. Vermont rallied with three goals in the second, only to see BU tie it before the second intermission. Both teams would score again in the third, but BU did so twice, giving them the go-ahead to the championship game in Washington, D.C.

On the other end of the brackets, Miami of Ohio ran Cinderella-story Bemidji State out of town with a 4-1 victory, and while I'm pulling for Miami of Ohio in this one, BU is the number-one seed, and how nutty would that be if BU won, and then the Bruins took the Stanley Cup just before the Celtics repeated, leading up to another Red Sox World Series title and a Patriots Super Bowl championship. It's quite possible.

Catch the action right now on the four-letter. Barry Melrose and Gary Thorne, the best commentating duo in sports history, are calling the game.
