Weekend Picks: Feb. 19

It’s hard to believe the regular season is over already. I had an amazing picks week last week, going 28-3-3 (.867). On the year, I am 359-99-52 (.754), way better than Vegas odds.

Here is to the last weekend in the regular season.

Friday, Feb. 19

Brown at Clarkson
Clarkson should clinch second place with a win here. Clarkson 4-2

Harvard at Colgate
The Crimson won this one big last time. Can Colgate turn the tide? Harvard 2-1

Dartmouth at Cornell
The Big Green have struggled more, and the Big Red are home, so … Cornell 3-2

Rensselaer at Princeton
This will be a close one, but I like the home team. Princeton 2-1

Union at Quinnipiac
The Bobcats clinch their first ECAC regular season crown. Quinnipiac 3-1

Yale at St. Lawrence
Revenge can be a powerful motivator. St. Lawrence 3-2

Friday-Saturday, Feb. 19-20

Penn State at Mercyhurst
The Lakers secure the CHA regular season crown. Mercyhurst 3-1, 3-2

RIT at Robert Morris
The Colonials get one win and leap into third. Robert Morris 3-1, RIT 2-1

Lindenwood at Syracuse
The Orange keep pace, but it’s not enough. Syracuse 3-2, 3-1

Vermont at Merrimack
The Catamounts lock up fifth place in Hockey East. Vermont 3-1, 3-2

Boston College versus Providence (home-and-home)
The Eagles finish the regular season with a perfect record. Boston College 4-1, 4-1

Northeastern versus Boston University (home-and-home)
Something tells me the Terriers get a win on home ice and gain momentum for the Hockey East tournament. Boston University 3-2, Northeastern 3-1

Bemidji State at Minnesota State
The Beavers lock up third in the WCHA with a tough sweep. Bemidji State 3-2, 3-1

North Dakota at Ohio State
The Fighting Hawks rebound from last weekend’s split. North Dakota 2-1, 2-1

Minnesota-Duluth at St. Cloud
With a split, St. Cloud gets fifth place in the WCHA. St. Cloud 3-2, Minnesota-Duluth 2-1

Wisconsin at Minnesota
I doubt this will be a sweep, but maybe the Gophers surprise me. At least I’ll get one game of the likely split right. Minnesota 3-2, 2-1

Saturday, Feb. 20

Yale at Clarkson
The Golden Knights will face a determined Yale squad, and come out on top. Clarkson 2-1

Dartmouth at Colgate
The Raiders could get home ice with a win as long as my pick on Friday’s game is wrong. Colgate 3-2

Harvard at Cornell
The Crimson keep the pressure on. Harvard 3-2

Union at Princeton
The Dutchwomen finish their regular season without a win. Princeton 3-1

Rensselaer at Quinnipiac
The Engineers will need a win here; a tie is more likely. Quinnipiac 2-1

Brown at St. Lawrence
The Saints get a win for a big weekend and the playoff hunt. St. Lawrence 3-2
