“Muffler” Mike Kostiuk:

COL @ BUF (Game 3)

Colorado. Offense, defense, and goaltending have been relatively even this series, regardless of what fans on both sides think about the officiating. Bottom line is this game will come down to which team will be more composed in responding to mistakes made. Based on that alone, I have to believe the Mammoth will repeat.

Shawn Slaght:

Buffalo vs Colorado (Game 3, for all the marbles!)

Pick – Buffalo

I don’t know why but I just have this feeling that the Bandits are going to pull it off. After losing three of the last five finals, you would think they are due. Add on top of that, it’s been tough to beat Buffalo on their home floor.

Gary Groob:

Colorado vs. Buffalo (Game Three)

Buffalo wins.

I have stood with Buffalo the whole way and I’m not about to change my mind now.  Nanticoke will be a beast in this game, as well as Dhane Smith being the setup man on most of the Bandits goals.  Colorado keeps it close all night.  Everyone will be on the edge of their seats all night!
