Weekend picks: March 10

Friday, March 9

No. 10 Gustavus Adolphus at No. 3 Wisconsin-River Falls
Gustavus lost to St. Thomas in the MIAC tournament championship game, but otherwise has not lost since Dec. 10. They’ve more than made up for a rough start to the season. Wis.-River Falls has just two losses all season and got a huge boost from an overtime win over rival Wisconsin-Eau Claire. The Falcons won in their only meeting this season. I have to pick them at home. Wis.-River Falls 4-2

Saturday, March 10

No. 5 Elmira at No. 2 Adrian
Adrian made it through their conference schedule undefeated and beat Elmira earlier this season. I think either team could take this one, but I’ll take Adrian’s streak and home ice to mean they’ll win. Adrian 5-3

No. 4 Norwich at No. 6 Middlebury
I think I have to pick Norwich here. They’ve done well against ranked teams. Norwich 3-1

No. 7 St. Thomas at No. 1 Plattsburgh
Sorry Tommies, but I’m still exercising my “pick Plattsburgh” rule. The Cardinals win. Plattsburgh 5-2
