College Hockey:
WCHA pick: Dec. 31

Bemidji State vs. No. 2 New Hampshire

Joe: Bemidji State was too sloppy with the puck, negating a strong first period and squandering a 2-0 lead in a 4-3 loss to UMass in the tournament opener. The Beavers cannot afford that against a top-tier team. Wildcats win in schools’ first-ever meeting.

Tyler: It’s hard to imagine New Hampshire losing two games in a row after that 4-1 shocker loss to Dartmouth. The Wildcats overmatch the Beavers in several categories. Have to pick UNH in this one.
