Tonight the Frozen Four gets underway in Pittsburgh. The Frozen Four is the college hockey equivalent of the Final Four. This year, two of the teams in the men's Frozen Four are from Connecticut: Yale University, whose last appearance in the Frozen Four goes all the way back to 1952, and the number one ranked team going into the Frozen Four, Quinnipiac University.
We spoke earlier this week with longtime Quinnipiac University men's Hockey coach Rand Pecknold about the team's humble beginnings playing Division II hockey, and their amazing journey to the Frozen Four. He says Quinnipiac doesn't get nearly the attention that perennial powerhouses like Boston College and Minnesota typically get.
