NCHC pick: Oct. 8

The only reason this matchup in the Icebreaker is a surprise is that the two Frozen Four teams from last year are playing in the consolation game.

Saturday, October 8

Boston College at Denver
Candace: Neither team looked particularly strong Friday, but I don’t see the Pioneers losing two in a row on home ice. Denver 2-1
Matthew: Both teams will look for a bounce-back win, but I like Denver to get it. Denver 3-2
