Hockey East pick – Dec. 16

Jim and I were equally wretched last week, and remain tied.

Dave last week: 4-8-1
Jim last week: 4-8-1
Dave’s record-to-date: 72-48-11
Jim’s record-to-date: 72-48-11

Here is this week’s pick, the one and only:

Saturday, Dec.  16

Northeastern at Merrimack 
Dave’s pick: Merrimack may have won its last two, but the Huskies have won their last three. More significantly, their 5-2 thumping of Boston College–building a 5-0 lead on four power-play goals–has me thinking they may be the team to beat.
NU 5, MC 2
Jim’s pick: Have to agree. I love a lot of what Merrimack is doing but I have to go with the favored Huskies.
NU 4, MC 2
