Championship weekend is upon us, so I’m going to make this short and sweet:
Any of these teams can certainly win this weekend, but I like Niagara to win the whole thing.
No. 3 Rochester Institute of Technology vs. No. 2 Niagara – The Tigers will have the home crowd advantage but I think Niagara is playing the best hockey of any of the four teams right now. Niagara 4, RIT 2.
No. 4 Mercyhurst vs. No. 1 Air Force – The Falcons are struggling a but right now but always seem to right the ship in Rochester. They have the intangibles and should win this game. Air Force 3, Mercyhurst 2.
If those picks hold up, I think Niagara will pull out a championship game win over the Falcons.
We’ll be liveblogging all three games and have the usual recaps and features from Blue Cross Arena. Go to USHCO.com during and after the games.
