College Hockey:
New Year’s Eve Picks

I’ve been picking this weekend’s games on a day-by-day basis, so here’s a look at the final two games of 2012.

Sacred Heart at Rensselaer, 4 p.m.

The Engineers are coming off a split at St. Cloud this weekend and return to Troy for their first home game since Dec. 1. They’ll face Sacred Heart, the only winless team in Division 1. RPI should take this one. RPI wins

University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth, 7 p.m. (Ledyard Bank Classic Championship)

Cab Morris made a career-high 31 saves as the Big Green beat New Hampshire 4-1 last night to advance to the Ledyard Bank Classic Championship.  Dartmouth has killed 32 straight penalties, and their penalty kill is 41-for-42 this season, tops in the nation.  The Minutemen scored two power-play goals last night against Bemidji State and have the country’s eleventh-ranked power play, so that’s a  matchup to keep an eye on. Still, I think Dartmouth prevails. Dartmouth wins
