Air Force Team Notes

• Air Force has won six straight games, all in conference play. The streak is the longest since the they won eight straight late in the 2010-11 season. • The Falcons will look to continue their winning streak against Canisius this weekend. Air Force leads the all-time series vs. Canisius, 18-10-8. The teams played six times last season with Air Force taking five of the eight points in four regular season games. The Falcons then swept the Griffs in the AHC Quarterfinals at the Academy in March. • Eric Baskin has been on a roll for the Falcons over the last five games. The junior has six points over the five game span, after registering just six points in the first 17 games. • Kyle Haak is another Falcon who’s been hot as of late, scoring at least one point in three straight games. The sophomore has also scored at least one point in eight of the last nine games. • The Falcons have just moved past Army for first place in the AHC standings. Air Force is also just outside of both national polls, as they continue to be one of two AHC teams still receiving votes.

Bentley Team Notes

• The Falcons escaped the weekend with three points after a win and a tie against Army. Bentley upset the, then conference leading, Black Knights at Atlantic Hockey’s Frozen Fenway matchup. • The win marks the second time the Falcons have won in the historic ballpark. In their Fenway debut dating back to the 2014 season, Bentley beat Holy Cross 3-2. • In game two of the series Bentley showed some true heart after battling back from three goals in the third to force a 5-5 tie with Army. The Falcons scored three unanswered goals over the final 11:43 of the third period. • Rookie defenseman, Brett Orr played tremendous over the weekend, leading the Falcons in scoring with four points in the two games. Orr tallied three assists and one goal, which came in the 3-1 win, over the weekend. Orr was named Atlantic Hockey Defenseman of the Week. • Bentley seems to be hitting their stride early in the new year after taking three points from the former first place Black Knights. Bentley will return to action this weekend against Niagara.

Lopez has posted at least one point in 18 of the 20 games this season. He leads the team with 12 goals and 22 points. • Goaltender, Paul Berrafato has been great in his last three games, allowing a combined two goals.

Last season Holy Cross stretched a winning streak to five games, and an unbeaten streak to ten. • Mike Barrett continues to inch closer to a career milestone, as he sits with 37 goals and 51 assists for 88 career points.
