And so... here we are. Notre Dame is in their third Frozen Four over the past 10 years- which are the only three time they have got this far. All three have been lead by Irish coach Jeff Jackson. Only two other schools have been to as many in the past decade (Boston College Eagles and North Dakota).
Even if you don’t have a clue about hockey, or do but just don’t follow college hockey... GET YOUR ASS IN FRONT OF THE TELEVISION TONIGHT AND WATCH. Get on Twitter and and have some fun, and let’s cheer on the Irish as they try to win another national championship this winter/spring.
