How to watch Minnesota hockey teams in the NCAA Tournament

Here's how you can find them on TV and via online streams.

Minnesota's march to the Frozen Four begins Friday night as the State of Hockey is represented in the 16-team NCAA Tournament with the top three seeds. 

Here's how you can tune in to watch No. 1 seed St. Cloud State, No. 2 seed Minnesota-Duluth and No. 3 seed Minnesota State-Mankato. 

#1 St. Cloud State Huskies vs. #16 American International

  • Time: 6:30 p.m. Friday
  • TV: None
  • Streaming: ESPN3

The Huskies (30-5-3) are the No. 1 overall seed and playing a pseudo home game in Fargo, North Dakota against American International (22-16-1), but to watch the West Regional matchup you'll have to be at Scheels Arena in person or stream it via ESPN3, which you can do via Watch ESPN. 

Finding the game on ESPN3 might be challenging, but if you click this link and find the "Live" section, then click "See all," you should be able to find the link to the game.

If the Huskies advance to Saturday's regional final, the game will be televised on ESPNU, which is an actual channel. 

#2 Minnesota-Duluth vs. #15 Bowling Green

  • Time: 3 p.m. Saturday
  • Streaming: Watch ESPN

The Bulldogs (25-11-2) are fresh off a win over St. Cloud State to win the NCHC tournament title and will face Bowling Green (25-10-5) in the Midwest Regional in Allentown, Pennsylvania. 

If the Bulldogs advance to Sunday's (5:30 p.m.) regional championship, the game will be televised again on ESPNU. 

You can listen to the radio broadcast online right here

#3 MSU-Mankato vs. #14 Providence

  • Time: 12 p.m. Saturday
  • TV: ESPN News
  • Streaming: Watch ESPN

The WCHA champion Mavericks (32-7-2) take on Providence (22-11-6) in the East Regional, which is a bit of a slap in the face to the Mavericks since the East Regional is being played in Providence, Rhode Island. 

Providence plays its home games at Schneider Arena, but this game will be played at Dunkin' Donuts Center, which is home to Providence's men's college basketball team.
