  3. Error noted: UAA hasn’t ended their WCHA, they play Minnesota State next weekend. Well that and you picked them to get swept.

  5. Thanks, guys. Got the corrections. I knew that UAA-UAF is home-and-home (hence the “vs.” not the “at”), but I put Fairbanks there both nights anyway. And I am sorry that I just completely glossed over that series with Minnesota State. AARP is knocking on my door — obviously. Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

  7. hey Paula ganafu is right, there is no way Miami can take 2nd in the ccha. Miami is locked into third. Michigan will finish 2nd or first depending on tonight’s results. I think you should look into AARP…

  9. for Saturday’s UMass-Lowell vs BC game, Jim picked BC to win, but said “difficult to pick against the River Hawks.” Guess you meant Eagles?

  11. Pretty much onboard with your picks again this week, although it is hard to imagine UMD losing another 2 at home.   I am thinking split there.

  13. Wow how does the Shephard family keeps thier jobs….Someone need sto tell me what they have on Mcleod. Oh yeah Mcleod is equally incompetent.

  15. UNO sits at 15th in the pairwise. They will almost surely need to win this series to continue their season. One win will leave them on the bubble and no wins will end their season.

    • I agree, but if they do it in 3 games, they will need to win 1 of the 2 in Minneapolis as well. Considering UNO hasn’t won a playoff series in the WCHA/NCHC era, I would believe that UNO’s season will end this weekend

  16. I would not want to face Duluth in the first round of the NCAA’s… assuming that they get in of course, looks like they will though.

      • You think? I guess it’ll all depend it they take care of Miami and see the new pairwise, sitting at 13 now is pretty close. Did uscho release the pairwise predictor yet?

        • I’ve been looking and have not seen the predictor yet. I don’t think it is active until all of the tournaments begin. Winning, obviously will help them, but a loss to Miami and even a loss in Minneapolis at the tourney may hurt even more since they are so close. And I guess what the other teams around them do.

      • Congrats on Penrose, even though it was sort of anti-climactic. My feeling is if UMD sweeps Miami they are in. If the top four NCHC win this weekend, UMD will play you guys as #1 in PWR. No way they will drop even one spot, winning or losing to #1. In the past, Pairwise Predictor has started next week when conference tourneys enter final weekend.

        • I was just thinking that they wouldn’t move up that much with a sweep this weekend. Hell, who knows. I could have a PhD in math and not know how the pairwise works with all the different math things going on.

          • If top seeds prevail we can check the Predictor next week and see exactly what would happen if they played UND and lost. If they sweep Miami and only move up one slot IMHO they are safe, but like you said the wonders of PWR are unknown to us laymen.

          • Crazy that DU plays Omaha again, along with Duluth and Miami. Still not sure why Miami even went back to Ohio for a few days. Had to have been the flight of shame.

          • Kind of strange how last week played out in relation to this weekend. UND and SCSU merely switched opponents, DU/UNO and Miami/UMD are replays. After Saturday I thought the same thing, Miami and UNO should just stay at a motel for five days.

          • I would have thought for sure Omaha to stay up in the altitude. Hell, go up to Breckenridge or something higher and then come back down, make it seem way better. Was a surprising stat that the record of the host teams vs the visiting teams is 14-0-2.

  17. No mention of St Cloud’s four short-handed goals Saturday night? Sure the series was a snooze, but I’m guessing that doesn’t happen too often.
