College Hockey:
Hockey East picks – Feb. 28-Mar. 1

Somehow Dave’s non-participation in picks has brought out the best in me. A near-perfect week last weekend.

Jim last week: 8-0-2
Jim to date: 143-62-27 (.674)
Date to date: 123-65-24 (.637)

Friday, February 28

Northeastern at Boston University
Jim’s pick: The Huskies come into Parker Rink and spoil Jack Parker Night.
NU 4, BU 2

New Hampshire at Merrimack
Jim’s pick: UNH needs wins to have a shot at home ice and wins the Wildcats will get.
UNH 3, MC 2

Providence at Maine
Jim’s pick: This might be the best series of the weekend with the most on the line. First-round byes, home ice, NCAA footing all up for grabs in Orono.
Maine 3, PC 2

Massachusetts-Lowell at Vermont
Jim’s pick: This series has split written all over it. I just can’t figure out which team wins which night.
UML 3, UVM 2

Saturday, March 1

Notre Dame at Boston College
Jim’s pick: It was a great game when these two met at Fenway. Expect nothing different.
BC 4, ND 3

New Hampshire at Merrimack
Jim’s pick: The Wildcats complete a difficult – and much needed – road sweep.
UNH 4, MC 3

Providence at Maine
Jim’s pick: Friars earn the split to make the long ride back more pleasant.
PC 3, Maine 2

Boston University at Northeastern
Jim’s pick: Huskies sweep and wrap up home ice.
NU 5, BU 2

Massachusetts-Lowell at Vermont
Jim’s pick: My toughest pick of the week, but I have to take Vermont on Senior Night.
