The top ranked Union College men's hockey team is getting ready to go to Philadelphia for this week's Frozen Four - their second in three seasons. 

The Dutchmen got a send-off from community leaders Monday morning, that included a "Go Union" banner on the pedestrian bridge over Erie Blvd.  The Chamber of Schenectady County is also passing out posters to area businesses wanting to show their support for the team.

Left-winger Cole Ikkala says the team knows what it's all about this time around.  He says, "there's going to be a lot of media, a lot of hype around the city.  You have to stay focused."

Union will take on Boston College on Thursday afternoon.

If Union gets past the Eagles, Saturday's national championship game will be aired on FOX Sports 980.
