Another week, another stretch of little change among the top teams in the Hockey Night in Boston Connecticut Division 3 rankings.

E.O. Smith/Tolland retains the No. 1 spot despite splitting a pair of games last week. The Bucks beat Enfield/E. Granby/Stafford, but a loss to D2 Woodstock Academy wasn’t enough to bump them from their perch.

No. 2 Newington remains hot in the chase, as the Nor’easters swept past Hall and then a pair of games against the Northeastern Shamrocks.

The same is true for No. 3 JBWA, which took care of both Southington and Masuk last week.

At No. 4, SGWL was a winner against BBD in its only action.

It gets interesting the rest of the way, where some big on-ice matchups scrambled the remaining four teams from last week.

No. 5 New Milford took advantage of the results around them, as well as wins over Amity and Rocky Hill.

No. 6 Conard got a nice bump, despite a scoreless tie with Rocky Hill, after scoring wins over Hall and – most importantly – Masuk.

That puts Masuk at No. 7, since the Panthers also beat BBD in addition to its setbacks vs. JBWA and Conard.BBD settles in at No. 8 after a tough week – losses to Masuk, Housatonic and SGWL, wrapped up by a win over the Shamrocks.
