Weekend picks: March 10

Nicole certainly had her best weekend last weekend, going 11-1 (.916). I was almost as good, going 10-2 (.833). On the year, I am 391-129-63 (.724), while Nicole is 354-166-63 (.661). In the playoffs, I am 34-9 (.790), while Nicole is 35-8 (.813).It’s down to eight teams, so here we go.Saturday, March 11No. 6 St. Lawrence at No. 4 Boston CollegeCandace: I’m going with the Eagles, but they could be prone to a letdown after two emotional OT wins last weekend. Boston College 3-2Nicole: I think I have to go with BC, but I wouldn’t be surprised if this is where we see an upset. I’m going low scoring, with BC edging out a win. Boston College 2-1No. 7 Cornell at No. 2 ClarksonCandace: This reminds me of last season, when Quinnipiac had to face Clarkson one week after beating them in the ECAC tournament, and promptly lost. This could be an upset, but I favor the Golden Knights. Clarkson 2-1 Nicole: I do think we’ll get one upset this weekend and I think it’s more likely to be Cornell than St. Lawrence. These two have played as close as possible all season and I like how upstart Cornell has been here in the second half. Cornell 4-3No. 5 Minnesota at No. 3 Minnesota-DuluthCandace: They played last weekend at the WCHA Final Face-Off, and it went to double OT. I wouldn’t be surprised to see OT again, but a different result. Minnesota 2-1Nicole: The Bulldogs get to be at home and have admitted they’re out to prove everyone wrong. I think I have to take UMD, but this is as close as matchups are going to get, I think. Minnesota Duluth 3-2No. 8 Robert Morris at No. 1 WisconsinCandace: This is the surest thing in college hockey this week. Wisconsin 4-1Nicole: Like I said to Arlan in Wednesday Women, the stats are not on Robert Morris’ side. I think this one is all Badgers. Wisconsin 4-1
