    New Hampshire vs. Boston College Fri Jan 11/Sat Jan 12

    The obvious marquee weekend of the season for Hockey East is near. Both teams looked unbeatable until early December and have each had a few hiccups the last month or so. I look forward to watching Friday's game on NESN and hopefully taking in Saturday's game up at the Lake. Cop out prediction, each team wins at home, but I wouldn't be surprised with any result. I'd be happy with 2 points this weekend.

    Marquee weekend thus far! I'll take the aim low, shoot high approach and say that I'd be happy with a point this weekend. No predictions, but a sweep would not be good on the heels of an up-and-down December. Especially After Dartmouth getting swept this weekend. Still a skeptic, but enjoying the results.

    I will miss all three regular season games UNH vs BC this season, but would be fine with a split this coming weekend.

    I was surprised with Dartmouth getting swept then realized it was at Q in OT then at Princeton 2-1 in a game that Princeton won with 16 SOG's (35-16) but, yeah, that was not good, at least for BC it wasn't

    I've been looking forward to this game for a while; it'll be the first game I've made it to in months. Will be watching the game on Friday in between sets at a gig.

    Predictions: Flaming starts tomorrow
    Friday: 4-3 BC (OT)
    Saturday: 4-2 UNH (ENG)
    Sunday: Patriots 31, Texans 17
    I haven't been on here in a year...
    Now I'm a dad. Holy crap.

    I'd be satisfied if your predictions hold up, but I wouldn't be surprised if Friday's game ends up being 5-2 BC (ENG.) I also suspect that, unless it ends in a tie, the flaming will begin after Friday's game -- especially if BC wins big. BC posters are typically the Molotov tossers, and as there seems to be some degree of discomfort among their lot, they may be choosing their words carefully, in case they have to eat them.

    I don't think you'll see much flaming following a game in early January. Leave that to Gopher fans. If one of these teams takes three points, my money would be on BC, but a split seems most likely to me.

    Sounds about right to me.

    BC has hit it's typical mid-season slide and it will probably take a few more weeks to really get back on track, especially with Alber out and MacLeod just getting back.

    Gaudreau's return will be big for this team and I expect the top two lines to start controlling games again. That guy left a big hole on the top line and it trickled down from there.

    The ramaifications for PWR and HE standings should be more than enough to get the energy going after a long layoff and a weird trip to Minnesota.

    being a foodie i despise the taste of words hence no Molotovs from me and i agree a split seems likely if not an edge to UNH at this point. BC IS a little out of sorts and it is very discomforting to me. If UNH wins saturday i will have to listen to my niece rag on me. I think she got me tickets for just that reason!

    Pfffffffffffffft. You hillbillies crack me up. As always.

    Maybe if UNH steals a point this weekend you can raise a banner for it.

    Hell, if we steal a point from GGTH, I'll change the oil on my tractor in nothing but overalls on Sunday

    You pinheads are a hoot.

    I really had to bump this thread? AHA Pick'em thread more active than this?

    Either we've all grown old and indifferent or we're all a little apprehensive on the "woofing" front, given our respective recent performances.

    I'm sure this place will come alive again if we can get some yahoo to start woofing about how big the numbers are on his W2. I will double that number on his 2013 form if he comes and scrubs the bottom of my yacht.
