Since I started writing this blog, I have never picked both teams in the championship game until this year. Coincidently, the last time I got the champion right was 2012, and that Frozen Four was also in Tampa Bay. Boston College won the Frozen Four that year. I don't think I have ever been as close on the picks as I have this year. Watching all of this hockey is finally paying off.

So, it's Quinnipiac vs. North Dakota for all the marbles. I have broken down games featuring both for the last two weeks. I think pretty much all the bases and all the analysis has been done. You know all about the schools, where they are from, where they play and a little bit of history. These are two great teams, clearly, because they have made it this far. So, let's get to the pick!
When this started, I picked North Dakota to win it all. I thought they were the best team. I also like them, so the pick was a little swayed by my heart. The North Dakota - Chicago Blackhawks connection has been well documented. I could not go against that pick. Finally, I like the Fighting Hawks ability to roll four lines and make life difficult for the Bobcats.
Bottom line: North Dakota 4 - Quinnipiac 3.
