The curtain is about to go up on college hockey's biggest stage. In general, college hockey is an afterthought in the national sporting television landscape. ESPN puts a couple of games a season onto ESPNU, Big Ten Network and NBCSports have consistent weekly coverage, and some schools get RSN attention. But none of those are truly national outlets that command the attention of the average sports viewer.

While the NCAA tournament still doesn't bring the level of attention to the sport that fans crave (with a majority of the games on ESPNU/ESPN3) it's the first real opportunity for the sport to show up on the casual fans radar outside of a few SportsCenter Top 10 Plays throughout the year. So what sort of storylines will the folks from Bristol get to hype this year? Will it be stories of "hot teams" continuing to roll through the tournament? Will there be a Cinderella? And just how many times will 0.6 get mentioned? /crosses fingers for many, many times

All I know is that I'm excited to drop the puck and get going! When that time comes on Friday afternoon, here's how you can watch.
