On Friday, the best men's teams in college hockey take to the ice for the NCAA Division I tournament.

Unlike the men's March Madness basketball tournament which boasts 65 teams — and growing — the hockey tourney invites only 16 college teams. And remarkably, this year four of these 16 teams are from New England.

Nancy Marrapese-Burrell, a staff sportswriter for the Boston Globe, joined Morning Edition to discuss the teams representing the Northeast.
