College Hockey:
ECAC West picks: Jan. 18

I finished 5-1 last week, although I didn’t expect Cortland to upset Utica. So far, I’m 34-6-4 (.818) for the season, while ECAC West schools get back to conference action this week.

Jan. 17

Elmira at Nazareth
The Soaring Eagles (7-9 overall, 2-4 ECAC West) scored 17 goals in a two-step sweep of Morrisville last week, and will be looking to continue that trend against the first-year Golden Flyers (5-9-1, 0-5), who are still seeking their inaugural conference win. Elmira 6-5

Jan. 18

No. 12 Manhattanville at Neumann
Both teams are coming off victories, but the host Knights (10-4-2, 2-4) have won six in a row. Home ice should give them a boost against the visiting Valiants (11-4-1, 4-1-1). Neumann 4-3

Jan. 19

No. 8 Utica at No. 3 Hobart
The visiting Pioneers (12-3, 3-2) rebounded from an upset by Cortland to top Western New England, while the host Statesmen (13-1-1, 5-0-1) won both of their games last weekend and have only lost once so far this season. Home ice may be the edge here, too. Hobart 3-2
