College Hockey:
Paula’s picks, April 11, 2013: Frozen Four

Well, my hockey-minded friends, we are down to it. As I’ve said repeatedly, I picked Notre Dame to go all the way in my bracket. Since I was wrong and I am here, though, I figured I’d post some picks with which many people are likely to disagree, especially my Hockey East counterpart, Dave Hendrickson.

Here’s my record to date.

Midwest Regional: 0-3 (.000)
Season to date: 130-99-29 (.560)

I only picked the Midwest Regional (as opposed to the others) because that’s where the CCHA teams were playing. We see how well that went.

This week

As you know, it’s UMass-Lowell vs. Yale at 4:30 p.m. and St. Cloud vs. Quinnipiac at 8:00 p.m. My buddy Dave has the River Hawks going all the way. Therefore, I must pick against them. It’s nothing personal, Lowell fans. Given my picks record, perhaps you should thank me.


Yale over UMass-Lowell, 2-1
St. Cloud over Quinnipiac, 3-2

I’m going with the teams I saw prevail in regional action. That’s my rationale.

I’ll post a pick for the title game on Saturday. By then, I may be 0-2 for the tournament.
