ECAC West Weekly Picks, Feb. 10-11

An unmitigated disaster, that is the best way to describe my picks last week.  I got every game wrong.  I am sitting in the penalty box feeling shame as I type this blog.
Anyone want to guess how many I will get wrong this week?  If the last two weeks are any indication, the number will be pretty high.
In addition to the pair of weekend series, Manhattanville finishes of its nonconference schedule at Morrisville.  Come on Valiants, give me one last bragging point against Russell.
Last Week:  0-3      
Overall:  47-22 (.681)
{predicted winners bolded}
Neumann at Utica:  This series comes down to who wants and needs it more.  Utica has an outside shot at the regular season title, or at least a home semifinal playoff game.  Neumann is looking to stop its slide  that started three weeks ago.  Neumann beat Utica 2-1 earlier in the season, but I think recent momentum carries the Pioneers forward this weekend.  Utica sweeps the series.
Elmira vs. Hobart (home-and-home):  The Wounded Warrior Project events provide plenty of distractions for both teams this weekend, but also extra hype and fan interest.  After resting last weekend, Elmira is healed up and ready for the stretch run.  Hobart traditionally matches up well against Elmira, but the Soaring Eagles have too many dangerous weapons this year for the Statesmen to handle.  Elmira sweeps the weekend.
Manhattanville at Morrisville – Manhattanville needs every win it can get to help its case with the NCAA Selection Committee.  The Valiants should be able to get back on the winning track on Saturday.
