Offensively, they've tallied 35 goals on the season with 16 of those coming from senior forward George Grannis. Last year, Grannis totaled 16 goals all season.

Grannis has earned a hat trick in each game, but credits his entire team to why they fell like they are playing in mid-season form.

I'm the one who's touching it last before it goes in the back of the net, but there's a lot of figures that come into play," said Grannis. "Whether someone gives me a good pass or takes a hit to make a play. At the end of the day as many goals as I scores, it's still a team win.

"We just have a lot of confidence," said senior goaltender Cam Brandt. I have confidence in myself, confidence in my defense, in the forward. We're not creating a lot of mistakes right now," he added.

The Hilltoppers will visit Forest Lake on Tuesday and return home on Saturday to host Minnetonka.
