Denver's Quentin Shore records hat trick in weekend action, earns top star
Third star -- Steve Perry, Clarkson
Perry, the sophomore goaltender, earned the start in both games over the weekend and allowed just one goal on 40 shots. The Ligonier, Pennsylvania native, allowed just one goal with 16 saves against a high-powered Quinnipiac squad in Friday’ 2-1 win. It was only the third time all year that the Bobcats had been held to less than two goals. He followed that up with a 23-save effort for his fifth career shutout with Saturday’s 4-0 blanking of Princeton. Perry has started 11 games and holds a .914 save percentage, a 1.92 goals-against average and a 5-4-1 record.
Second star -- Patrick McNally, Harvard
McNally helped Harvard to a sweep with four points on two goals and two assists. In the conference clash against Dartmouth on Tuesday, McNally scored the game-winner and added an assist on the other goal in the 2-0 shutout. McNally -- a senior defenseman from Glen Head, New York -- followed that up with a goal and an assist in Friday’s 5-1 win against non-conference foe Bentley. On the weekend he totaled four points, two goals, two assists, six shots and was a plus-4 rating. On the season, McNally has 11 points on four goals and seven assists.
First star -- Quentin Shore, Denver
Shore, a junior from Denver, Colorado, had four goals and an assist on the weekend, the only player in college hockey to score more than three goals on the weekend. In the Friday night contest against Air Force he led the Pioneers to the 7-0 victory with four points on a hat trick and an assist. He also scored a goal in a 3-2 win against Wisconsin on Saturday night. In addition to the five points on the weekend, he also tallied 8 shots on goal and a plus-2 rating. He now has 11 points on the season with five goals and six assists.
