Picking the championship final

It’s down to No. 1 Plattsburgh and No. 2 Elmira.

Tonight.

For all the marbles in women’s Division III.

Candace and Matt take the floor for one final time this season.

Elmira at Plattsburgh
Candace: These two have each beaten the other this season, and are the two most recent national champions. I have to think home ice makes a difference. Plattsburgh 3-2
Matt: Too close to call. Really, it is. Both teams have so much talent that it’s unfair one team has to lose. These powerhouses are so similar in every facet of the game, each team has its high-end players and top-end coaches. But I still have to pick a winner. Hmmm… I can’t. No, I will. Elmira, 3-2.

Third-place game: Norwich vs. Wisconsin-River Falls.
Candace: Norwich didn’t looked a little more raw than the Falcons. Wis.-River Falls 4-2
Matt: I have River Falls here, 4-1.

  1. I believe Union is 15-2-3 in the last 20 on the road dating back to last year.  That has got to be one of (if not the) best road records in college hockey. 
    This team plays their game, they can beat anyone.

  2. Harvard goes to UND next week.  We’ll see how they do, then we’ll talk possibly seeing Union in the post-season.  I’m not holding my breath…

  3. My picks:

    Last Week: 6-4-0
    Season: 19-9-3 (.661)

    Friday:
    Maine 1, Lowell 4
    Providence 2, UMass 3
    BU 2, MC 3
    ND 1, BC 3

    Saturday:
    Maine 0, Lowell 5
    Vermont 1, UNH 4
    UAH 2, NU 4
    UConn 1, MC 5

    Sunday:
    BC 5, BU 4
    UAH 3, NU 4

  4. Maine will likely be just what Lowell needs to get themselves moving in the right direction. With 2 teams that cannot score you have to look at the goaltending and Carr is much stronger than Sullivan Oullette or Morris and that will be the difference this weekend.

  5. I was happy with BU getting two points last weekend at the Ralph. I hope for more points this weekend. But if it is only two points for the Terriers, pretty easy to figure out which ones we want.
