Lewis becomes first Clarkson goalie in 15 years to record consecutive shutouts
Third star -- Ralph Cuddemi, Canisius
The junior led the Griffs to the first regular-season series sweep in school history of city foe Niagara. In the Thursday night opener, he scored two goals, including the game-winner in the 4-1 victory. In the sweep-clinching 6-4 win Saturday night, Cuddemi had a career-best four points on two goals and two assists. For the weekend, he had six points, four goals, two assists, 16 shots on goal and was a +5. On the season, he has 29 points on 16 goals and 13 assists for Canisius which is on a seven game unbeaten streak, which is tied for longest in the nation.
Second star -- Daniel Ciampini, Union (N.Y.)
The Dutchmen had only one game last week, but Ciampini made sure to make the most of it. In the Mayor’s Cup rivalry game against Rensselaer, the senior forward tied the school record for points in a game with a six (3 goals, 3 assists) in an 8-3 win played before a crowd of 8,714 at the Times Union Center in Albany, New York, Saturday night. It was his second hat trick of the season and enabled him to surpass the 100-point mark for his career. Clampini is now the NCAA season leader in points with 37 and goals with 20.
First star -- Greg Lewis, Clarkson
The goaltender was perfect in two games, backstopping Clarkson to a 4-pt weekend at Cheel Arena as he became the first Clarkson goalie in 15 years to record shutouts in consecutive games. In Friday’s 6-0 victory against Brown he made 27 stops, including a penalty-shot save. In the 1-0 victory against then-No. 13 Yale Saturday night, he registered 25 saves. The last time a Clarkson goaltender posted consecutive shutouts was when Karl Mattson shut out Yale and Quinnipiac on Feb. 5 and Feb. 8, 2000. Lewis has a current shutout streak of 147:45 during the team’s current three-game win streak.
