A hearty congratulations to the Irish Hockey team for making the first Frozen Four in school history with last night's 3-1 win over defending national champion Michigan State. After a surprising 7-3 pasting of #1 seed New Hampshire, the Irish avenged last year's season-ending loss to the Spartans and have punched their ticket for an April 10th Frozen Four match with the Michigan Wolverines in Denver, Colorado. Und.com's Tournament Central has all the info on the upcoming national semifinal as well as an Irish tournament recap.
This is a fantastic accomplishment for Coach Jackson and his squad. A special congrats to senior captain Mark Van Guilder who was named Most Outstanding Player of the Midwest Regional and scored the go-ahead goal against MSU.
ESPN has the highlights for those who weren't able to catch last night's game.
Congrats again to the Fighting Irish Icers.
