1. Christian Horn, Benilde-St. Margaret's
Consistently a threat in the offensive end, Horn scored twice and powered the Red Knights' offense. Worth noting was the contrast between his two goals as Horn displayed his scoring ability. The senior forward's first was a pretty one -- going off the left post and in -- and his second goal was a dirty one as Horn punched in a loose puck on the crease.
2. Patrick Graham, Benilde-St. Margaret's
His goal in the second period got things going for the Red Knights and his play in the defensive end kept Armstrong off the scoreboard. The junior defenseman was a force at both ends of the ice.
3. Michael Greenberg, Robbinsdale Armstrong
Greenberg delivered yet another solid showing, making 30 saves and surrendering four goals against a dangerous Red Knights' offense (Benilde-St. Margaret's fifth goal was scored on an empty net). The senior made the most of his last career varsity game, which followed his 49-save performance on Thursday, Feb. 23, in a stunning 2-1 upset over defending Class 2A champion Eden Prairie.
