No. 10 Benilde-St. Margaret’s at No. 7 Elk River
7 p.m., Tuesday, Jan. 28
At Elk River Ice Arena
One team comes in having lost two straight games while the other hasn’t fallen since before Christmas. Elk River is one of the hottest teams in the state, going 8-0-0 since losing all three games at the Edina Holiday Classic in mid-December. In fact, those are the only three defeats for the Elks, who have used a tight defensive game to slow down opponents. The Elks have allowed only 13 goals in the last eight games, and more than two just once in that span (a 6-4 victory at Blaine on Jan. 9). That defense will be tested by high-powered Benilde-St. Margaret’s, which looks to get back on track behind senior sniper Spencer Naas (24-24-48), who is fourth in Class 2A in goal scoring.
