Weekend of Dec. 18-20

Not much action this past weekend, so obviously this is going to be fairly short.

– Oh Michigan Tech … I wish you could turn things around. I’m also pretty sure your fans weren’t happy seeing you fall 6-2 to your UP rivals.

– With the loss, the Huskies saw their losing streak extend to 11 games.

– From the sounds of things, Brad Eidsness played pretty solid in UND’s exhibition win over the U.S. Under-18 Team.

– It is kind of amusing that his shutout bid was ruined by future Fighting Sioux J.T. Miller.

– Much as I expected would be the case, CC and UNO split their weird Saturday/Sunday series.

– CC’s winning streak extended to six games on Saturday, thanks in part to a hat trick by Omaha native Nick Dineen.

– Then, their winning ways were stopped thanks in part to John Faulkner’s shut out on Sunday.

That’s all from me for now. However, if you’re looking for some holiday hockey reading this week, I’ll be back … either Wednesday or Thursday with my annual midseason WCHA report card, so keep your eyes peeled for that.


  1. I’m kind of confused here…why are you guys picking games 3 when you are predicting sweeps???? That doesn’t make sense. Its like, I think Maine will win the first two games…but if theirs a third, Maine will win it anyways???? huh?

    • We pick a third game even if we predict a sweep so that if we’re wrong we have a pick in place for that third game.

  2. Picks

    BC in 2
    UNH in 3
    NU in 3
    MC in 3

    BC over NU
    MC over UNH

    BC over MC in a great hockey game. I’ve seen a bunch of teams play this year (12 games) and this is the way I see it.

    I also see Hockey East getting 3 teams in unfortunately. Still, I think as many as 5 can get in if Maine wins at Merrimack and wins its semi final game, if BU moves into the semi final, or if Northeastern wins out (automatic). I wouldn’t count out NU, I saw them play in the Beanpot final and the following home and home serise at BC and was impressed. I was more impressed with Northeastern then UNH when I saw them play last weekend at BC and BU, which I saw at the Beanpot and vs. BC in late January.
