We’re down to the final four in the Hockey East tournament, and remaining standing are UMass-Lowell, Boston College, Boston University and Providence College. There are any number of intriguing storylines heading into Saturday’s championship game — which can be seen live on NESNplus. While it’s no surprise to see BU and BC among the contenders, Lowell became the first school other than those two, Maine and New Hampshire to win the regular season. So while the Riverhawks may be a surprise, they should be as competitive as anyone. The Friars moved into the final four for the first time since 1995. They beat New Hampshire behind an incredible effort from freshman Nick Saracino, who scored four goals to go with an assist on Sunday. Among the big boys, BU is basically playing to extend the 40-year career of legendary coach Jack Parker, while BC weighs heavily on star forward Johnny Gaudreau. Keep in mind, not only are bragging rights in Hockey East on the line, but there are several teams — BU included — fighting for a place in the NCAA Tournament, so there should be some extra incentive on the ice this weekend. Check out the grid below for a complete list of television providers and corresponding channels to see how you can catch the Hockey East Tournament championship game live from TD Garden at 6:30 p.m. ET on Saturday, March 23.
