Don’t rub your eyes, or do a double-take. Other than some changes in the numbers in the win-loss columns, there was no movement from last week in the Hockey Night in Boston News Connecticut Division 1 boys’ rankings.

No. 1 New Canaan hasn’t played since a Dec. 23 overtime victory over ND-West Haven, so the Rams get another week in the top spot.

Darien remains at No. 2, having beaten Greenwich in its lone game from a week ago.

No. 3 Fairfield Prep and No. 4 Notre Dame-West Haven both ventured out of state for some tough matchups. The Jesuits, who were supposed to play in the Mount St. Charles Holiday Faceoff that was canceled, instead split with Delbarton, N.J. (loss) and St. Joseph Collegiate of N.Y. (win). Meanwhile, the Green Knights fell to host Catholic Memorial and beat Bishop Feehan in the CM Holiday Tournament, and ended the week with a win over Hamden.

It’s a big week upcoming for the top four, as ND-West Haven takes on both Darien and Fairfield Prep.

No. 5 Fairfield Warde/Ludlowe beat West Haven in its only action. In a matchup of top-eight teams, No. 6 Ridgefield came out on top over No. 7 Northwest Catholic, and the Tigers face New Canaan in this week’s other matchup of ranked teams. No. 8 Xavier held ground with its win over Hamden.
