MCHA picks: Feb. 8

First off, congratulations to the Adrian Bulldogs! They are once again the MCHA regular season champions, as they clinched their sixth consecutive title in a win and tie against Lake Forest last weekend.

There are only two more weekends of the regular season left to play, and currently my season total picks are at a 48-38-5 (.539) record. Last week, I went 5-2-1 (.625) with my predictions, not bad.

This week, Concordia will be hosting Adrian. Lake Forest and Milwaukee School of Engineering will be playing a home-and-home series, Marian will travel to Northland, and Lawrence is on the road at Finlandia.

Friday-Saturday Feb. 8-9

Adrian at Concordia
The Bulldogs (13-0-3) are coming off a weekend that included a 6-1 victory before tying Lake Forest, 3-3, the following day. Concordia (6-10-0) is just two points out of the playoffs in the South Division, and was swept by MSOE last weekend with matching 3-1 losses. The Falcons are on a six-game losing skid. Adrian took two from Concordia earlier this season. Adrian 4-1, 3-1

Lake Forest vs MSOE
Lake Forest (6-8-2) had its five-game win streak snapped last weekend, as Adrian beat them, 6-1, before a hard-battled 3-3 tie on Sunday afternoon. MSOE (10-5-1) swept Concordia over the weekend. The Raiders hold a firm second place spot in the standings. Lake Forest will want to further the two-point distance from the bottom spot in the South Division. Lake Forest 3-1, MSOE 4-2

Marian at Northland
Northland (6-10-0) will be hosting Marian (9-7-0) this weekend. The Lumberjacks split a series with Finlandia over the weekend with an 11-4 victory on Friday night and a 3-2 loss on Saturday. Marian swept past Lawrence with 3-1 and 3-2 scores. Marian swept Northland earlier in the season, and Northland has only had two victories at home this season. Marian 3-1, Northland 3-2

Lawrence at Finlandia
Lawrence (5-9-2) was swept by Marian, with 3-2 and 3-1 final scores. The Vikings haven’t won consecutive games since Nov. 30-Dec.1, when they took two from Finlandia. Finlandia (5-11-0) split with Northland last weekend. After an 11-4 loss on Friday, they came back for a 3-2 victory on Saturday. The Lions are only two points behind the Vikings. Finlandia 3-2, Lawrence 2-1
