Notre Dame Hockey Hits the Big Stage

Tonight the Notre Dame Hockey team plays its first game in the Frozen Four. They play at 9:00 tonight against fellow CCHA member Michigan. They have played Michigan twice this season losing both games. For some reason though records have seemed to matter little after the regular season ended. They have had an incredible run this postseason. They lost the first game of the CCHA playoffs to Ferris State before rallying to win the next two to advance to Joe Louis Arena. Once in Detroit they lost both games they played that weekend. They made it into the NCAA Tournament, but they were a four seed not expected to go very far. They have proven everyone wrong becoming the first #4 seed to advance this far. They beat New Hampshire and Michigan State in Colorado Springs on consecutive nights to advance. I wish the tourney was closer so that I could attend, but it is in Denver this weekend so I think I will just tune in to ESPN2 tonight to see if they can advance to the finals. Jeff Jackson has really turned this program around in a short time. They are without their top scorer, but still have managed to make history. Maybe they can make some more tonight.
