The Boston University men’s ice hockey team is heading back to TD Garden Saturday, April 11, where they will face Providence College in the Frozen Four final. A Terrier victory would earn the program their sixth NCAA championship (they last won their national title in 2009), and their first under head coach David Quinn (CAS’89).

First things first
The Terriers play Providence on Saturday starting at 7:30 p.m. ESPN will provide live coverage. A Live audio broadcast of the game will be available on GoTerriers.com.
Where to watch in the Boston area
Sadly, TD Garden game tickets are officially sold out. If you don’t already have one and weren’t among the lucky fans who won a chance to buy tickets in BU’s lottery, you can try StubHub and other websites, but they’re prohibitively expensive (starting at $300 and going up to $1,200 each).
The Dean of Students office is hosting a big watch party on Saturday in the George Sherman Union Metcalf Ballroom, starting at 7 p.m. Free food will be provided.
The BU Alumni Association and the Friends of BU Hockey will host a Frozen Four Pregame Gathering and Watch Party Saturday at 5 p.m. at the Harp, the official BU meeting place throughout the Frozen Four. Admission is free, and there is a cash bar. RSVP here. The bar, at 85 Causeway St., is just steps from TD Garden.
There will be regional alumni watch parties in New York City, Austin, Minneapolis, Portland, Ore., Seattle, and Washington, D.C. Find more information on alumni regional watch parties here.
Hockey fans can visit Causeway Street outside TD Garden on Saturday as part of the NCAA’s Frozen Fest, a free fan festival featuring interactive games, giveaways courtesy of the NCAA, and Frozen Four merchandise for sale, as well as music by local bands, food and drink, and appearances by local hockey personalities.
The Frozen Fest is Saturday, April 11, from 3:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the TD Garden East Plaza, Causeway St., Boston. The event is free and open to the public.
