1. Ash Altmann

The Duluth East junior missed on his first breakaway chance but not the second, and his third-period goal clinched the Greyhounds' stunning victory over Edina.

2. Grant Loven

The East Grand Forks forward scored three goals and dished at least as many bone-rattling hits to lead the rock-'em, sock-'em Green Wave past Mahtomedi.

3. Luke Olson

Hermantown's 5-7 mighty sprite of a goaltender stopped all 13 shots he faced against St. Cloud Apollo.
