Nevertheless, the Frozen Four still has a full slate of other activities, even if the games themselves are sold out. Team practices at the Pepsi Center for both the semi-finalists (beginning at 11 a.m. today) and the finalists (starting at 11:15 a.m. on Friday, April 11) are free and open to the public. Friday night features a series of events, including the presentation of the Hobey Baker award the college-hockey equivalent of the Heisman trophy followed by a skills challenge with the nation's best players at 7 p.m. ($10, Pepsi Center). The weekend culminates with a free open skate on the Pepsi Center's ice at noon on Saturday, a mere five hours before the puck drops for the finals. Visit www.denver.org/frozenfour for information.
And even if you don't make it to one of the above, the Frozen Four presents a golden opportunity to recoup some of that you money you lost in this year's March Madness.
