NCHC pick: Dec. 28

Well, Matthew and I both missed picking Western’s upset of Michigan. Let’s see if we are more accurate for Saturday.

Western Michigan v Michigan Tech (Great Lakes Invitational championship)
Candace: Western has been inconsistent so far this year, but so has Tech. I’ll go with the conference pick and figure the Broncos have more momentum after the huge upset Friday. Western Michigan 4-2
Matthew: Western Michigan downing Michigan was a bigger upset than Michigan Tech besting Michigan State in the GLI’s other semifinal, and in taking the league homer pick here, I’m hoping that Western takes that little bit more momentum into the tournament final and beats last year’s champion. It’s a toss-up, though, really; Western’s still lost three of its last five, and Tech hasn’t won a game within 65 minutes of game time since just after Thanksgiving. Western Michigan 3-2
