It appears that the NCAA is considering moving the game dates for the Frozen Four from Thursday and Saturday to Saturday and Monday. That’s listed as a possible option in the bid specs, and it would give the Frozen Four a similar structure to the men’s basketball Final Four.
We’ll check with the NCAA to see how much of a possibility this is, but I wanted to put it out there. How would you feel about the national championship game being played on a Monday? Leave a comment below.
Update: I notice that the minimum capacity to host a Frozen Four is 18,000. Will that eliminate Boston from consideration? Maybe not. Capacity at TD Garden is listed as 17,565 for hockey, although Frozen Four games there in 1998 and 2004 drew crowds of over 18,000.
