There are four teams still standing in college hockey, and two of them are smack dab in the middle of the New Haven Register’s coverage area.
Quinnipiac (located in Hamden, just up Whitney Avenue from New Haven) routed Union 5-1 Sunday night, joining Yale (campus in downtown New Haven) in the Frozen Four in Pittsburgh.
It’s quite likely at least one of the two will be in the April 13 championship game, and it’s a certainty that at least one team in a Digital First Media market will be in it. The other two teams in Pittsburgh will be St. Cloud (Minn.) State, which plays Quinnipiac in one semifinal, and UMass-Lowell, which plays Yale in the other.
