St. Louis, MO
NCAA Hockey National Championship Game
Here are some real interesting notes for tonightâ€™s game that I have learned here in St. Louis.
1. MSU and BC met in the 1959 Frozen Four Semiâ€™s and the Spartans won 4-3 in OT.
2. MSU is the second #3 seed to advance to the final since the brackets expanded to 16 teams in 2003. BC did it last year.
3. 1998 was the last time a CCHA team made the championship.
4. Comley is 1-1 in Championship games in his 34 years of coaching.
5. Rick Comley will try to become only the third coach in history to win a national championship with two different schools.
6. Five times in a championship game a school from Michigan has played a school from Massachusetts and all five times a school from MA has won. Is six anybodies lucky number?
Props to the NCAA media folks for passing this on.
