College hockey playoffs underway – Kings prospects on TV

Frozen Four NCAA hockeyIt’s time for March Madness of a different sort – this one is on ice!

Five Kings’ prospects will be participating in this year’s NCAA post-season hockey tournament. For those not familiar with the finer points, it works similar to the college basketball format – all games are ‘one and done,’ with the winner advancing and the loser going home. One main difference though is that the tournament only features the best 16 teams, not 64.

The 2013 Frozen Four will be held April 11th and 13th at Pittsburgh’s Consol Energy Center. First up though are the four regionals, which kick off today…
