There’s not a lot of change in this week’s power rankings. Many of the teams in Atlantic Hockey are holding steady with only Niagara and Holy Cross separating themselves from the pack. The Purple Eagles are just one point up on Holy Cross but have a six point lead over Bentley.
ANd if you haven’t seen it already, check out the Atlantic Hockey Tenth Anniversary video here.
1. Niagara – If you can score on Carsen Chubak, it’ll be the highlight of your season at this point. The junior allowed just one goal this past weekend and now has a nation leading five shutouts along with a ridiculous 0.99 goals against and a .970 save percentage.
2. Holy Cross – The Crusaders have taken points in their last four games, winning three of them. At this point, they are the only real threat to Niagara at the top of the standings. The Crusaders 7-3 win over RIT was their first regular season victory over the Tigers since 2006.
3. Air Force – The Falcons had the weekend off and try and get to winning this weekend against UConn.
4. Robert Morris – The Colonials played just once this weekend and had to face Carsen Chubak and Niagara. They were shutout by Chubak. They continue to alternate winning and losing this year and need to get more consistent.
And check out this video that the Colonials made with he men’s lacrosse team in support of Movember.
5. Army – The Black Knights continued their much improved season with a win over Sacred Heart before being shutout by Brown. They still sit in fourth place.
6. Bentley – The Falcons move up a spot this week after outscoring AIC and UConn a combined 10-4.The two wins puts the Falcons in third place, with a big weekend against Mercyhurst coming up.
7. Mercyhurst – The Lakers were swept by RPI last weekend and need to regroup as they travel to Bentley this weekend.
8. UConn – The winning streak was short lived as the Huskies fell to Bentley. The Huskies allowed three straight third period goals after taking a 1-0 lead.
9. AIC – The Yellow Jackets got one point this weekend with a tie against Sacred Heart. They are still looking for their first conference win of the season.
10. Canisius – The Golden Griffins found some offense two weekas ago beating RIT 6-3 but it disappeared just as quickly as they fell to Niagara 2-1 last week.
11. RIT – The Tigers struggles continue as they earned just one point at Holy Cross. The Tiger could have split the weekend but allowed a late third period goal on Saturday to tie.
12. Sacred Heart – The Pioneers are the only winless team in Division and it doesn’t look to change soon. They face Princeton on Friday before Niagara on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1.
