No. 2 seed Boston University and top prospect Macklin Celebrini are a game away from the Frozen Four. Minnesota Hockey will try to send them back to Boston.

Two traditional college hockey powers will square off in the Sioux Falls Regional final as the No. 2 seeded Boston University Hockey team faces the Minnesota Golden Gophers with a trip to the Frozen Four on the line.

The Gophers beat Omaha 3-2 to advance to the regional final, while the Terriers beat RIT 6-3. In the win over RIT, top NHL 2024 Draft prospect Macklin Celebrini scored a goal to push the lead to 4-2 in the second period. 

Minnesota, winners of five NCAA National Championships but none since 2003, were the Frozen Four runner-up in 2023, losing to Quinnipiac 3-2 in overtime in the final. To reach that final, the Golden Gophers ended Boston University's season in a 6-2 win in the national semifinals. 

The Terriers are looking for payback this year in the Sioux Falls Regional Final, which is at 6:30 p.m. EST on March 30. 

The Terriers are seeking their fifth national championship but their first since 2009.
