Frozen Four Starts Today

from David Albright of ESPN,

The 2009 Frozen Four finds itself in our nation’s capital this weekend as college hockey’s final weekend plays its last three games at the Verizon Center. And with that, you can add a new venue to the list of ones that have hosted this event.

If you’re keeping score, the Verizon Center will be the 30th different arena that has called college hockey’s final four home. Now the question is whether a new team will be added to the list of national champions.

Of the four teams left standing, only Boston University has previously won a title. If Bemidji State, Miami (OH) or Vermont skates around the ice with the championship plaque Saturday night, it will mark the 18th different school to claim the national title.

Here are five key questions (plus a bonus one) heading into Thursday’s national semifinals (ESPN2HD and ESPN360, 5 and 8:30 p.m. ET).
