Marching on to Compuware - Let's predict some finalists

Not a ton of upsets in the state quarterfinals Wednesday night. I guess you could call Grosse Pointe North's win over Livonia Churchill a slight upset, but considering the competition the Norsemen have played all year long, maybe not so much.
That was a game I missed in my quarterfinal predictions. I also missed the Grand Rapids Forest Hills Eastern/Northern-Traverse City Central game. Guess I don't know my west-side hockey. Finished 10-for-12.

Let's see if I can do better picking the finalists and champions, here.
