Four of the top college hockey teams in the nation are shipping up to Boston with a championship on the line.
After two rounds of regional play, the Frozen Four is all that’s left of this year’s NCAA Men’s Ice Hockey Tournament. Three top seeds took care of business in the regionals to advance, while another program is still alive after pulling off an upset.
Michigan, which has the most national titles in Division I history with nine, earned the top overall seed in this year’s tournament and won the Midwest Regional. Next up for the Wolverines is Denver, which won the West Regional and is chasing its ninth championship.

The five-time national champs’ next tilt will be against Minnesota State, which reached its second straight Frozen Four by winning the East Regional as the top seed.
