Time to pick some hockey winners, Compuware-style

I redeemed myself slightly with my quarterfinal predictions. Nine out of 12 isn't all that bad. Yeah, that's 75 percent - or a C average. But I'm a sports writer. Give me a break.
I'm back to make one final set of predictions, through Saturday's hockey finals at Compuware Arena.

Semifinal and Final predictions
Detroit Catholic Central 6, East Kentwood 0
Detroit U-D Jesuit 4, Brighton 2
Detroit Catholic Central 3, Detroit U-D Jesuit 1
THOUGHTS: The Shamrocks edged out Jesuit 2-1 way back in December. Both teams are playing some good hockey right now. I just think CC will bring it Saturday night.

Port Huron Northern 5, Hartland 2
Livonia Stevenson 5, Saginaw Heritage 1
Livonia Stevenson 4, Port Huron Northern 2
THOUGHTS: Port Huron Northern finished 1-1 against KLAA teams this season. And that's exactly how I see them faring against that league this weekend. Stevenson entered the tournament ranked No. 1 in the state. And that's how they'll leave the tournament.

Cranbrook 8, Riverview 1
Sault Ste. Marie 4, Flint Powers 3 (OT)
Cranbrook 6, Sault Ste. Marie 1
THOUGHTS: The Cranes run to a state title began last season, after an overtime loss to Marysville in the regional final. They've been focused all year long and will have NO problems this weekend.
