College Hockey:
A pick for tonight’s Boston College-Michigan game, plus our own preseason predictions

Is it wrong for me to be so excited about tonight’s Boston College-Michigan game that I can barely sit still?

The Wolverines are 4-0-0 versus the Eagles in Yost Ice Arena and 11-6-0 all-time against Boston College. Michigan beat BC in their last meeting, 4-2, a semifinal game at the 2011 Great Lakes Invitational at JLA.

Michigan’s 2012-13 season ended with a 3-1 loss to Notre Dame in the last-ever CCHA playoff championship game. Boston College bowed out last season in the NCAA East Regional, with a 5-1 loss to Union.

My pick

I know history says otherwise, but I say Eagles 4-2 over Wolverines.
