When I listen to the Gopher Puck Live podcast, I usually send in a tweet to the show. This week I sent in this prediction for the Gophers in the Frozen Four. Before you shoot me full of holes, I don’t think it’s that far off of the mark. Apparently, some Gopher fans didn’t like my bold prediction, one thin skinned person called me an idiot. However, I will stand by this prediction and here is why. I have put a lot of thought into this prediction. I have also watched my favorite team go down the Eagles in more than one Frozen Four. Having watched a lot of college hockey this season, Boston College is hands down the best hockey team that I have seen play this season. I have not seen many teams that can match B.C.’s speed, not even the Gophers can. Last week a couple of Bulldogs fans took issue with my prediction that I thought UMD would get rolled in the Northeast Regional championship game.  I guess I wasn’t that far off the mark eh? Last weekend the Boston College Eagles absolutely dismantled the UMD Bulldogs who had two of the best forward lines that I have seen in college hockey this season.  The Eagles held the top line of Joe Basaraba, Jack Connolly and Mike Seidel off of the score sheet. That’s almost unheard of and not many teams can saw that they accomplished that this past season. If History tells us anything the Boston College Eagles are deadly when they get to the NCAA Frozen Four. Here are some recent results. 2010 Frozen Four (Ford Field) April 8th 2010 B.C. 7 Miami 1 April 10th 2010 B.C. 5 Wisconsin 0 *Miami was 27-7-7 and Wisconsin was 25-10-4 2008 Frozen Four (Denver) April 10th 2008 B.C. 6 UND 1 April 12th 2008 Boston College 4 Notre Dame 1 *UND was 26-10-4 and Notre Dame was  24-15-4 Power Play 5 Minnesota                43/185      4      23.2 6 Boston University    45/197      2      22.8 Penalty Kill 3 Boston College          162/184     11      88.0 36 Minnesota               149/184      7      81.0
