The issue of the so-called tournament atmosphere surfaces in college hockey around this time every season as we head into NCAA regional weekend. The selection committee switches some matchups, in part, to generate more attendance and, therefore, more buzz in the buildings.

But are ticket prices holding some would-be attendees back? If you’re buying through Ticketmaster, where fees are added to the base price, a two-day adult regional ticket package costs $72.70 in Grand Rapids, $86.30 in Toledo and $87.30 in Providence and Manchester. A single-day ticket costs $42.05 in Grand Rapids, $53.85 in Toledo and $54.50 in Providence.

So we asked our Twitter followers a question:
