The first Frozen Four game will be between the Union College Dutchmen of Schenectady, NY and the Ferris State University Bulldogs of Grand Rapids, MI. The game is set to begin at 4:30 p.m. from the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Florida. The game will also be televised on ESPNU.
The winner of this game will face the winner of the Boston College-Minnesota game to play in Saturday's National Championship game at 7 p.m. on ESPN2.
The Dutchmen got to the Frozen Four as the top seed in the East region. They scored a 3-1 victory over the Michigan State Spartans in the first game and then a 4-2 victory over Massachusetts-Lowell in the quarterfinals.
The Bulldogs got to the Frozen Four as the No. 2 seed in the Midwest region. They opened up the hockey tournament with a 2-1 win over Denver and then in the quarterfinals they won another 2-1 game, this time over Cornell.
The Dutchmen may be favored in this game, but the Bulldogs scrapped their way into the Frozen four so there is a lot that could happen in Tampa Bay on Thursday.
