After last week’s shakeup in the Hockey Night in Boston Connecticut Division 2 rankings, things settled neatly into place this week, with no changes to the order of the top eight.

That doesn’t mean everything went smoothly for the ranked teams, but any blips were either to Division 1 programs or to opponents ranked above them.

No. 1 North Haven took care of business by beating both Daniel Hand and East Haven.

Wethersfield stays in the No. 2 spot despite the loss to D1 Northwest Catholic. The Eagles did rebound with wins against Glastonbury and Eastern Connecticut.

No. 3 Lyman Hall scored the big victory of the week, knocking off No. 4 Sheehan in the latest battle of Wallingford. But the Trojans began the week with a tough loss to D1 power Fairfield Warde/Ludlowe, and wrapped it up with a win over Daniel Hand.

As for Sheehan, the Titans responded with wins over Guilford (in the resumption of a suspended game) and Milford.

No. 5 Westhill-Stamford had a perfect week, beating both Trumbull and Branford.

Farmington Valley remained hot and stays at No. 6 with wins over Cheshire and Daniel Hand.

No. 7 South Windsor beat East Catholic in its only game of the week.

Trumbull remains at No. 8 to round out the list, despite its loss to Westhill-Stamford.

Look for a big week ahead for the rankings, highlighted by Saturday’s 1-2 matchup between North Haven and Wethersfield (5:50, Newington). But before that, Wethersfield also takes on Farmington Valley on Wednesday (8:00, Avon Old Farms). In another head-to-head ranked matchup, Westhill-Stamford heads to Northford Ice Pavilion on Friday (8:00) to meet Lyman Hall.
