2013 NCAA Tournament picks: Notre Dame over Wisconsin for national championship

March 29, 2013 - Matt Wellens

MARQUETTE — The first puck drop of the 2013 NCAA Division I ice hockey tournament is just hours away with Yale and Minnesota facing off in Grand Rapids at 2 p.m.

USCHO has a full schedule here and it includes TV information.

For those of you who prefer a bracket format, the NCAA has one here that also includes broadcast information.

All the games are available on ESPNU or ESPN3.

Below are my picks for the NCAA hockey tournament, which will hopefully be stronger than my NCAA men’s basketball bracket. So much for Gonzaga, Georgetown and Miami in the Final Four ... at least I picked Oregon and Ole Miss to pull first-round upsets.
