Weekend Picks: Feb. 26

I had another absolutely stellar picks weekend last week, going 27-3-4 (.852). I think that’s the best back-to-back performance for me ever. I finished the regular season at 386-102-56 (.761).

For the postseason, I start over, but I’ll also include a season summary in addition to postseason summary each week. Postseason gets harder, so can I stay on top of things?


RIT at Penn State
I think this might actually be a sweep for the Nittany Lions, though OT wouldn’t surprise me. Penn State 3-2, 3-1

Lindenwood at Robert Morris
The Colonials haven’t been a model of consistency, so three games seem likely. Robert Morris 3-2, Lindenwood 3-2, Robert Morris 2-1


Cornell at Clarkson
Cornell showed signs of better hockey last weekend, but they haven’t been consistent. Clarkson 3-1, 3-2

Harvard at Colgate
The Raiders have yet to beat Harvard this year. It should happen at least once this weekend. Colgate 3-2, Harvard 2-1, 3-1

St. Lawrence at Princeton
Another three-game series. Princeton 3-2, St. Lawrence 3-2, Princeton 3-1

Rensselaer at Quinnipiac
As close to a sure thing as there is in the ECAC. Quinnipiac 4-1, 4-2

Hockey East

Maine at Boston College
How many goals will BC get this weekend? What’s the over/under? Boston College 5-1, 6-1

Vermont at Boston University
The Catamounts were one of the few games I picked wrong last week. I don’t see them getting a win. Boston University 4-2, 3-1

Providence at Northeastern
Kendall Coyne might retake the national scoring lead. Northeastern 5-1, 6-1

New Hampshire at Connecticut
How many overtimes in this weekend? Connecticut 2-1, New Hampshire 2-1, Connecticut 2-1


Minnesota-Duluth at Bemidji State
The Beavers should emerge with a tough sweep. Bemidji State 3-2, 3-1

Ohio State at Minnesota
A seemingly better and better Amanda Kessel should scare the rest of the country. Minnesota 4-1, 5-1

St. Cloud State at North Dakota
It goes three, but the home team moves on. North Dakota 3-2, St. Cloud 3-2, North Dakota 2-1

Minnesota State at Wisconsin
The Badgers don’t run up the score, but sweep. Wisconsin 4-1, 4-1
