No. 1 Star

Cole Gunner

Air Force, Jr., Forward, Richfield, Minn.

Gunner had three goals and an assist as the Falcons swept visiting Sacred Heart over the weekend. The team's second leading scorer now has a 10 game point streak in which he has six goals and eight assists. Line mate and the team's top scorer Chad Demers had four assists on the weekend.

No. 2 Star

Michael Colavecchia

RIT, Sr., Forward, Maple, Ontario

Colavecchia's three-goal performance helped the Tigers to a weekend sweep of Army and snapped a four-game losing streak. He had the game-winning goal each night and has now registered a point in four straight games. Colavecchia, who scored his 100th career point at Bentley last Saturday, now has 42 goals and 61 assists for his career.

No. 3 Star

Matt Ginn

Holy Cross, Jr., Goaltender, Lindsay, Ontario

Ginn was responsible for orchestrating an upset victory over Boston College earlier in the season, but this weekend might have been equally meaningful. The goaltender stopped 79 of 83 shots on the weekend to help his team sweep Niagara on the road. It ended a six-game losing skid and was the first win since that shocking victory at BC on Nov. 29. The Crusaders had gone 0-6-2 since that day.
