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.
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.
