Postseason picks 3/4

Last Week: 6-4-2
On the Season: 102-66-25 (.593)

I already previewed the four first round playoff games in this week’s Atlantic Hockey column, so let’s go right to the picks:

Saturday, February 26
Canisius at Niagara – These schools are sports rivals and never has so much been on the line as they meet in the postseason for the first time as Division I programs. Both teams have high powered offenses so I think it will come down to goaltending. Niagara 4, Canisius 3.

American International at Army – The Black Knights swept the Yellow Jackets two weeks ago and I think history will repeat.  Amy 4, AIC 2.

Sacred Heart at Bentley – I think this will be a close game, possibly needing extra time. But I like the home team to prevail. Bentley 5, Sacred Heart 4.

Mercyhurst at Robert Morris – The Lakers are the only team to have beaten the Colonials at the Island Sports Complex this season, and I’m picking it to happen again in the lone upset of the weekend. This one could go extra long as well. Mercyhurst 3, RMU 2.
