Hockey East pick – Dec. 18

Jim had another excellent week, perfect until Vermont toppled Dartmouth, while Dave was mediocre.

Just one game on tap until the holiday tournaments.

Happy Holidays to all!

Dave last week: 4-3-0
Jim last week: 6-1-0
Dave’s record-to-date: 48-21-18
Jim’s record-to-date: 48-15-15

Here are this week’s picks (oops, make that pick):

Saturday, December 18

Vermont at St. Lawrence
Dave’s pick: Both teams have gotten off to slow starts (UVM: 2-8-4, SLU: 3-8-3) so home ice is looking like the deciding factor.
Jim’s pick: I think that Vermont is playing better, but this is the end of a long road swing for the Cats, so, like Dave, I like the home team.
SLU 4, UVM 2
