Weekend picks: Dec. 1

Uh oh. Matthew is ahead of me. The horror. Giving too much credit to the WCHA cost me. Mea culpa NCHC! Last week, I went 3-4-2 (.444) while Matthew went 5-2-2 (.666). Matthew now leads our season picks race, as I am  48-26-10 (.630) while Matthew is 49-25-10 (.642).

Let’s see if I can catch him.

Friday-Saturday, Dec. 1-2

No. 1 Denver at No. 16 Minnesota Duluth
Candace: This is a tough one to pick, but I’m going with Denver to get a sweep, simply because of Denver’s offense. Denver 3-2, 4-2
Matthew: UMD has a thing lately about getting results in series openers, and at home I think it’ll happen again here. Minnesota Duluth 3-2, Denver 3-1

No. 10 Western Michigan at No. 6 North Dakota
Candace: Can North Dakota take advantage of Western’s road weakness and get a sweep? Probably not. North Dakota 3-2, Western Michigan 4-2
Matthew: Western isn’t as strong away from home, and UND will be looking to bounce back from the Union series and should get a bump from Cam Johnson’s return. This will probably be a split, but it’s tough to tell who wins which night. North Dakota 3-2, Western Michigan 3-2

No. 2 St. Cloud State at No. 20 Omaha
Candace: I’m tempted to pick a split, but St. Cloud looks really strong right now. St. Cloud State 3-2, 4-2
Matthew: Mike Gabinet spoke this week about Omaha trying to make Baxter Arena a tougher place to play, and I think that’s happening but I don’t know if the Mavericks take points from this series. St. Cloud State 3-2, 3-1

No. 5 Cornell at Miami
Candace: Cornell has looked really good, and Miami has been inconsistent. I’m going with a hunch. Cornell 4-2, 3-2
Matthew: Cornell has started the season on a serious roll, but I’m going to go homer-ish a little here and call for a split. Miami 3-2, Cornell 3-2


  1. Beanpot preview is what I call this weekend. If only BC
    could play more like the 7-1 win over BU and the Terriers less like the lost
    against UNH then it would Be their
    weekend. I really want to see what Harvard has to give and surely the Terriers
    will make them show it.

    Would the Badger’s finally clime up or would OSU keep them
    out of the top 10? Would UND sweep and move up or would the Beavers boot them
    out of the polls? I guess it all depends if Decker and the Lamoureoux twins
    finally got over the jet lag but not of the 4 nations scoring momentum.

    It’s Friday and you know what that means… it’s HOCKEY time!
