Hockey East picks – March 7-8

Just when I began getting cocky, karma put me back in my place last week.

Jim last week: 4-4-1
Jim to-date: 147-66-28 (.668)
Dave to-date: 123-65-24 (.637)

Friday, March 7

#10 Massachusetts at #7 Vermont
Jim’s pick: I think that Vermont has enough of the depth at each position to win this game and advance.
UVM 4, UMass 2

Saturday, March 8

#11 Merrimack at #6 Maine
Jim’s pick: If there was one upset to pick, I think this is it given how Maine finished its season, but I still think this team has the talent to advance.
Maine 3, MC 2

#9 Boston University at # 8 Notre Dame
Jim’s pick: Another close one, but I just don’t see the Irish losing at home.
ND 2, BU 1
