Boston College Wins Frozen Four

Boston College is this year's NCAA college ice hockey champions. Congrats to them.

It has long since stood as a perennial hockey hotbed and produced a litany of NHL stars. And now that it captures yet another title, hockey will continue to grow at the University level.

It also grew a little more attention to the Big Ten Conference that had the Wisconsin Badgers on the front stage.

There are some really interesting facts that The Hockey News (link at the bottom) had pointed out in their article.
  1. 37,592 was a record crowd to see it in Detroit's Ford Field.
  2. This was the first shutout game final since 2004 when Maine was shut out by U of Denver.
