The road to the top of Hockey Night in Boston’s Connecticut Division 2 boys hockey rankings continues to run straight through Wallingford.

No. 1 Lyman Hall and No. 2 Sheehan continue to have matching 9-1-0 records, which each padded with perfect weeks. For the top-ranked Trojans, it was back-to-back solid wins over Milford and Eastern Connecticut.

Meanwhile, the Titans took care of Westhill-Stamford in their only action last week. The only thing separating the teams remains a 5-4 Lyman Hall win on Jan. 8.

The No. 3 position seemed stable until late Monday night, but instead it’s Trumbull moving up one rung into that spot. Even though the Eagles fell last week to Greenwich, they did score an earlier win over Branford.

Now at No. 4 is North Haven, which took down Cheshire in its only game last week.

As for that vacated No. 3 spot? That previously belonged to now-No. 5 East Haven, which was stunned by Amity on the back end of three games in four nights. The Yellowjackets started that run with wins over North Branford and SGWL, but couldn’t sustain it.

Wethersfield held steady at No. 6 thanks to wins over Simsbury and Farmington Valley.

Daniel Hand is up to No. 7, the win streak now at five after the Tigers iced Immaculate.

Back in the rankings at No. 8 is South Windsor, which took down Glastonbury and Tri-Town to push its win streak to five.

The lone matchup of ranked teams this week pits Daniel Hand against Lyman Hall on Saturday, a 7:30 p.m. faceoff at Northford Ice Pavilion. But several other games have some intrigue – previously ranked Westhill-Stamford will try to play its way back into the top 8 against Daniel Hand (Wednesday, 3:30, Terry Conners) and Trumbul (Saturday, 8, Terry Conners), and the same goes for Farmington Valley vs. Wethersfield (Saturday, noon, Avon Old Farms). Trumbull also has a Wednesday matchup vs. D1 Ridgefield (8:30, Winter Garden), and North Haven has a pair against D1 opponents – West Haven on Wednesday (6, Bennett) and Immaculate on Saturday (4:45, Northford).
