Frozen Four: What others are writing

A look at what others are writing about on the Frozen Four:

While the spotlight around here is shining on Quinnipiac and Yale, St. Cloud State is basking in plenty of bright rays itself. The St. Cloud Times takes a look at St. Cloud State's crazy past few days.

St. Cloud State also got quite a welcoming when it returned to home Sunday night.

The Hockey News' Ryan Kennedy listed Matthew Peca as one of the prospects from college hockey he is excited to see in the NHL in the future:

Matthew Peca, C – Quinnipiac Bobcats (ECAC)
The Bobcats torched Union en route to a Frozen Four berth and Peca wielded the flamethrower. His natural hat trick in the first period was the fastest in tourney history and he added an assist for good measure in the second frame. The speedster will be a key part of Quinnipiac’s effort for the school’s first-ever national title. Drafted 201st overall by Tampa Bay in 2011.

The Bangor Daily News profiled Yale hockey assistant, Dennis "Red" Gendron, who previously worked at Maine as an assistant for the Bears. Gendron has been to two Frozen Fours.

The Connecticut Post's Bill Paxton said Yale and Quinnipiac are taking their standard businesslike approaches as they prepare for the Frozen Four.

The Hartford Courant's Jeff Jacobs thinks this Quinnipiac-Yale rivalry is getting a little frosty. reviews the regionals and has plenty of praise for both Quinnipiac and Yale

Yale's Kenny Agostino and Quinnipiac's Matthew Peca were both listed in Bleacher Reports Top 10 prospects in the NCAA Regionals. Find out who was selected No. 1
