For the second week in a row, Air Force hockey is garnering national poll recognition.

The Falcons moved up one spot to No. 19 after going 1-0-1 at home against American International College last weekend That included scoring three goals in the final four minutes of regulation Saturday to garner a 3-3 tie.

That tie kept the second-place Falcons (19-8-5, 16-5-3 league) only one point behind Canisius in the Atlantic Hockey Conference standings, although Air Force has played one less game. That difference will be made up during the final weekend of the regular season.

Last week was the first time AFA was ranked since reaching No. 18 in the Oct. 10 immediately following the Falcons’ Icebreaker tournament championship. They fell out of the poll the following week.

The U.S. College Hockey Online rankings are used by The Associated Press and The Gazette.
