The Frozen Four is finally here!

Since winning the national title last season, our sights have been set on returning to the Frozen Four, especially with it being hosted at Ridder Arena. And after a long, exciting and history 2012-13 season, we have finally achieved one of our goals.

With the rest of Minnesota on Spring Break, our schedule has been very flexible. We had a team breakfast this morning at Egg & I, and then we had our team practice around lunchtime.

The practice was business as usual, and we fine-tuned some things for tomorrow's game versus Boston College. At the end of practice, we did our ritual "Hair-Down Showdown", which is done the last practice before the weekend begins. Coach Frost was the surprise winner today as he somehow slipped the puck by Noora.

After practice, Noora, Amanda and Coach Frost addressed the media one last time before the weekend.

We are now getting ready to head to the NCAA Frozen Four Banquet, which will be held at TCF Bank Stadium. It will be a good chance for all the players, coaches and staff to mingle with one another and really take in the whole Frozen Four experience. I've heard the meal is the same as what we had at the Senior Banquet back in February, so we all are pretty excited about dinner tonight!

The banquet will wrap up our final prep day for the Frozen Four, and then it is business tomorrow morning! Everyone is pumped and excited to defend our national title this weekend!
