Elite Eight Predictions Week Five (1/14-20)

I am going to stick to the 8 games per week. If you would like a "Twitter Pick" tweet @cthshockey and I'll send you a pick there!

RECORD: 22-7-3   LAST WEEK: 6-1-1

Elite Predictions: Mark these on the calendar

1/14 Newington-Berlin @ EO Smith-Tolland 4:30 @ Uconn- Former D3 power vs. current D3 power. I'll probably regret it but I'm calling for an upset. Roll Bucks. Bucks 4-3
1/14 New Milford @ North Haven 4:30 @ Northford Ice Pavilion- This could be a pivotal D2 matchup in terms of seeding later on. I think New Milford is the more complete team right now. Wave 3-2
1/14 North Branford @ Cheshire 5:30 @ Wesleyan Ice Rink- Another great D2 tilt. This one is truly a toss up. NB has been fantastic to this point but after seeing both teams in person, Cheshire is the pick. Rams 4-2
1/14 Fairfield Prep @ West Haven 6:30 @ Bennett Rink- West Haven is playing very well and playing with a great level of intensity. They'll need that and more to beat the Jesuits. Prep is good this year, not as good as years past but still darn good. I don't think WH has the fire power to keep up. Prep 5-2
1/17 New Canaan @ Darien 4:00 @ Darien Ice Rink- Rivalry Saturday in Darien. The Wave have been crashing a bit of late and not looking like their early season selves while New Canaan has played good hockey of late. I'll go with the recent trend. Rams 2-1
1/17 Glastonbury @ East Catholic 7:00 @ Champions Skating Center- Glastonbury has been excellent this year out of the gate. East Catholic as come close to the big win a few times but hasn't been able to grab it. This is a great opportunity for them. However, I think Glastonbury takes it. Tomahawks 5-3
1/17 Masuk @ Trumbull 8:00 @ The Rinks At Shelton- Trumbull has lost their last four games by a total of 6 goals including three one goal heartbreakers to the likes of Darien, Greenwich, New Milford and North Haven. They are probably the states best 3-5 team. Masuk is one of the best D3 teams in the state. This should make for an exciting game. I hate to do it but I'm going to go with Masuk. Some would even consider it an upset. They just seem like a complete D3 team right now where Trumbull's frustrations could start to show. Panthers 3-2 
1/19 Notre Dame-West Haven @ Bishop Hendricken (RI) 4:00 @ Levy Rink- Great game when these two met last year. NDWH looked a lot different though for that one. The Knights have been playing better hockey of late and should keep this close but I think Bishop takes this one. BH 4-3
