St. John’s at Wisconsin-Eau Claire
St. John’s is on a six-game win streak. Wisconsin-Eau Claire has outscored its opponents 108-61. Wis.-Eau Claire did suffer a loss in the conference championship to St. Norbert. Wisconsin-Eau Claire 4-1

Oswego at Adrian
Oswego is 23-4-0 this season. Adrian boasts a 23-1-3 overall record heading into the game this Saturday, including a six-game winning streak in which they have outscored their opponents 31-10. Both teams have over 130 goals this season, with 133 and 135 respectively. Adrian 4-3
Babson at Norwich
Babson took the ECAC Championship from Norwich, and is 1-0-1 with the Cadets this season. I’m not sure they’ll be able to do it another time. Norwich 3-2
Wisconsin-Eau Claire at St. Norbert
The defending national champion Green Knights are on a seven-game win streak, while keeping opponents to 48 goals all season. St. Norbert 3-1
Bowdoin at Utica
Utica had a less-than-stellar end of the season with a 2-1 loss to Manhattanville in the ECAC West semifinal, and will have more than two weeks off without a game going into the tournament. We’ll see if the rest did them any good. Utica 2-1
