Frozen Four Field Set: Denver to Face Michigan in First National Semifinal

The Frozen Four field is now set. Quinnipiac gave Michigan all the Wolverines could handle in the third period of the weekend’s final game, the Allentown Regional Final, but two Michigan empty-net goals after QU nearly erased a 4-0 deficit prevented the Bobcats from completing the comeback. After Minnesota clinched the third trip to Boston with their victory over Western Michigan this afternoon, Michigan earned the final spot with their 7-4 win this evening.

So, now all the guessing and prognosticating is over. The 2022 Frozen Four is now set with the semifinal matchups happening at the TD Garden in Boston on April 7th:

Semifinal #1 (3pm MT): #1 Denver vs #1 Michigan
Semifinal #2 (6:30pm MT): #2 Minnesota vs #1 Minnesota St.

Despite tonight’s 11-goal outburst (seven of which came in the third period), the regionals were relatively low-scoring with one-goal games dominating the results. However, even with that low-scoring, defensive trend, four of the country’s five best offenses in terms of goals scored per game advanced to Boston.

We will have more Frozen Four coverage over the next week and a half as things continue to develop, including keeping you updated on any planned Denver fan and alumni events in Boston and we will be there covering DU’s fourth Frozen Four since 2016 and LetsGoDU’s revival.

  1. What a horrible blunder by QU coach to pull goalie with 4 min left. Mind bogglingly stupid with the way that game was going. Good, I wanted to face Michigan anyway.
