D-III Frozen Four picks: March 15 (Kevin Damask)

Friday, March 15
Oswego vs. Norwich
The puck drops on the NCAA D-III Frozen Four with two traditionally strong programs that are no stranger to the spotlight. The Lakers fell to St. Norbert in last year’s national championship game and have been on a mission to return to the final all season. A late goal sends them back to the title game. Oswego 4-3
Wisconsin-Eau Claire vs. Utica
These two unfamiliar foes clash in Friday night’s nightcap. The key battle will between the pipes, as the Blugolds’ Brandon Stephenson faces the Pioneers’ Nick Therrien. The Blugolds, coming from the tough NCHA, will lean on Stephenson to get the job done and advance to the title game. Wis.-Eau Claire 3-1
Saturday, March 16
Wisconsin-Eau Claire vs. Oswego
The Blugolds could cap off their dream season with their first NCAA D-III title, while the Lakers will be hoping to avenge last season’s loss. Wis.-Eau Claire, armed, by Stephenson and a cast of opportunistic forwards, will push Oswego to the limit. However, the Lakers, leaning on big-game experience will survive to claim the championship. Oswego 3-2 (OT)
