March Madness--Hockey Style

If you're more of a puckhead than a hoops fan, it doesn't mean you have to miss out on the Madness of March. This weekend, Boston plays host to some of the best men's and women's college hockey teams in the country. The Women's Frozen Four comes to Agganis Arena with semi-finals Friday (Minnesota-Duluth vs. Wisconsin and Mercyhurst v. Minnesota) and the championship Sunday at noon. Tickets are $24.50 for each session and available through Ticketmaster

The men will take to the ice at the TD Banknorth Garden for the Hockey East Championship on Friday and Saturday. The Friday night semi-finals feature Northeastern vs. UMass-Lowell followed by BU-BC at 8. The winners square off Saturday night at 7 PM with a berth in the NCAA Tournament on the line. Tickets range from $17-$39 and are available through Ticketmaster. If you ever wanted to sit in those swanky club level seats at the Garden, this is your chance to do so at a reasonable price--$39. As of this morning, club level seats were still available for Saturday night.
