Semifinal picks: March 17

Friday, March 17

Gustavus Adolphus at Adrian
It’s been a heck of a run for the Gusties, but I think it ends here. Not only is Adrian nearly perfect this season, but they get to play at home. Adrian is fairly similar to Wisconsin-River Falls and Gustavus managed to corral the high scorers on the Falcons, so I don’t think it’s a given that Adrian’s ridiculously talented top line gives them fits, but I do think Gustavus would need to be nearly flawless and get some puck luck to keep those three off the board. Adrian 5-2

Norwich vs. Plattsburgh
These two have met twice this season and the Cardinals came out ahead both times. I don’t think there’s any reason to think this time will be different. Plattsburgh seems to excel (even more) under pressure. This is the most familiar of territory for them. Norwich needed two overtimes to defeat Middlebury and it’ll be interesting if that comes through as fatigue or confidence for them. Plattsburgh 4-2
