I gave up some ground to Jimmy last week.  Time to reestablish that four-game lead.

Dave last week: 5-5-0
Jim last week: 7-3-0
Dave’s record-to-date: 25-14-2
Jim’s record-to-date: 23-16-2

Here are this week’s picks:

Friday, Nov. 9

Maine at Massachusetts-Lowell
Dave’s pick: The River Hawks have gotten off to a slow start, but Maine’s has been glacial.
UML 4, Maine 1
Jim’s pick: I am with Dave here. Lowell should sweep this series, but most definitely will win on Friday.
UML 3, Maine 2

Providence at Massachusetts
Dave’s pick: Home ice rules as this time the Minutemen hold the late-game lead.
UMass 3, PC 2
Jim’s pick: I think PC will be pretty hungry after a loss to Vermont. Yes, UMass is coming off a loss, but I worry that home ice won’t play a big role this Friday.
PC 4, UMass 2

Boston University at Merrimack
Dave’s pick: I’ve liked what I’ve been seeing from the Warriors, but not enough to pick them over BU.
BU 4, MC 3
Jim’s pick: I’ve said this in previous year: I’m not picking against Merrimack at home until this team gives me a reason.
MC 3, BU 2

Notre Dame at Boston College
Dave’s pick: I’m all-in on the Eagles.
BC 4, ND 3
Jim’s pick: Me too. Push those chips to the middle.
BC 4, NU 2

Saturday, Nov. 10

Maine at Massachusetts-Lowell
Dave’s pick: With four points on the weekend, the River Hawks begin their turnaround.
UML  4, Maine 2
Jim’s pick: I think a split is possible but being in Lowell, I’ll go with the River Hawks sweep.
UML 5, Maine 2

Vermont at New Hampshire
Dave’s pick: The Wildcats record back-to-back shutouts against neighboring state rivals.
UNH 3, UVM 0
Jim’s pick: Part of me wants to call Vermont, but the way UNH is playing is impossible to pick against.
UNH 3, UVM 1

Alabama-Huntsville at Northeastern
Dave’s pick: The Huskies end their five-game winless streak.
NU 4, UAH 1
Jim’s pick: This one seems like a given, despite NU’s struggles.
NU 5, UAH 2

Connecticut at Merrimack 
Dave’s pick: The Warriors rebound from Friday night’s loss to BU.
MC 4, UConn 2
Jim’s pick: Merrimack, home, Atlantic Hockey opponent. C’mon.
MC 5, UConn 1

Sunday, Nov. 11

Boston College at Boston University
Dave’s pick: The Eagles take this latest edition of the mega-rivalry even though they’re on the road.
BC 3, BU 2 
Jim’s pick: Even though BU is home, I feel BC is the better team right now.
BC 4, BU 2

Alabama-Huntsville at Northeastern
Dave’s pick: Two wins on the weekend for the Huskies are just what the doctor ordered.
NU 4, UAH 1
Jim’s pick: Agreed. Prescription is already penned.
NU 3, UAH 2


  • Union ’97

    I believe Union is 15-2-3 in the last 20 on the road dating back to last year.  That has got to be one of (if not the) best road records in college hockey. 
    This team plays their game, they can beat anyone.

    Harvard goes to UND next week.  We’ll see how they do, then we’ll talk possibly seeing Union in the post-season.  I’m not holding my breath…
