How, when, where, why you want to watch the NCAA championships.

Matt Knies and Mike Koster are going to Tampa, and you can watch them play. The NCAA Frozen four semis are on Thursday April 6, 2023. The first game (the important one) features Minnesota vs Boston University.

You can watch that game in the USA on ESPN2 and in Canada on TSN+. Start time is 5:00 pm. All three Frozen Four games are in Tampa in the home of the Lightning this year.  

Update: Minnesota won by a score of 6-2 and they go onto the final

The second semi is on the same channels at 8:30 pm also on April 6, and features Quinnipiac vs Michigan.

Update: Quinnipiac won by a score of 5-2.

Good Friday, April 7, is when the Hobey Baker award will be announced at an outdoor event in Tampa beginning at 4:30 pm. Knies is one of the three finalists this year. It should be available on their website:

The finals are on Saturday at 8 pm with the same broadcast options as the semis.

Now, you might be asking, just what is TSN+. That's a very good question. This is a new thing, and currently sort of free on If you have a regular subscription or can access it via your television provider, you can get TSN+ in a free preview – time limit unknown. However, I had to agree to accept promotional emails to get access. I assume you understand all the ways to deal with that.

If you want to see the gamesheets, with live updating play-by-play information, you can find the first semi here:
