2015 Boston Beanpot Schedule
The college hockey season is in full swing and fans are as excited as ever as teams are looking to position themselves for a spot in the NCAA Tournament and a potential trip to the Frozen Four. The closer it gets to the end of the regular season, the more intense things get and this just makes for more electric venues and games as the season progresses. One late season tournament that college hockey fans are always looking forward to is the Boston Beanpot, an annual event that features four of the biggest rivals in the sport going head to head against one another in front of all of their biggest fans. If you are looking for hard-hitting, thrilling college hockey action you can do no better than the Boston Beanpot.
Every season the Boston Beanpot is held at TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. The arena is home to the NBA's Boston Celtics as well as the NHL's Boston Bruins, but when college hockey hits the Garden in the form of the Boston Beanpot the venue truly comes alive. Four teams participate in the annual event, Boston University, Northeastern, Harvard, and Boston College and these teams are competing against one another as much for an improved spot in the upcoming NCAA Tournament as they are for pride and local bragging rights. There is nothing quite like being inside TD Garden for one of the biggest events of the college hockey season when die hard fans, students, and alumni from four local colleges all descend on the arena to vociferously cheer on their team. Be sure to get your tickets for the Boston Beanpot from StubHub as soon as possible so you can get some of the best seats in the house.

Hockey fans in general are some of the most passionate sports fans around, but nothing quite matches the fanaticism surrounding college hockey and Boston College, Boston University, Northeastern, and Harvard fans are some of the most dedicated and vociferous fans in the entire NCAA. On game day at TD Garden, the fans file in and take their seats when the cheering and chanting begins. As the clock winds down closer and closer to the dropping of the puck the crowd works itself into a frenzy. Finally both teams are ready for face off and the excitement really begins. Thunderous, bone rattling hits, incredible displays of speed and agility, powerful slapshots, and tremendous saves set the arena on fire for the following three periods of world class college hockey. By the time the final buzzer sounds your voice is hoarse and your palms are stinging from clapping and giving high fives and you will already be planning a return trip to TD Garden. Every year the Boston Beanpot is one of the most anticipated tournaments of the college hockey and when you are in the stands at TD Garden you will understand why.
While the Frozen Four now rotates among different venues in different cities now, the first 10 NCAA Men's Hockey Tournaments were all held at Colorado Springs' Broadmoor Ice Palace.
College hockey is one of the most exciting sports in the United States, and each year all of the teams participating at the Division I level have the same goal, make it to the postseason where they can make a run to the Frozen Four. The NCAA Men's College Hockey Tournament has a long and storied history that goes all the way back to 1948. Over the decades, the format has evolved to its present state, which is 16 teams from the five Division I conferences who are then divided up into 4 regions consisting of 4 teams. The single elimination tournament has grown into one of the most exciting college sporting events of the year. The top seed in each of the four regions is assigned to the arena closest to their campus to provide them with the best home ice advantage.
