No. 1: In order to knock off Providence and repeat as Kennedy Cup champion, Benet will need strong play from goalie Justin Davidson. Coach Jon Grzbek said he’s never seen a player during his time at the school have more shutouts than Davidson. He will need to be strong in net versus the Celtics, who have scored 20 goals in five meetings with Benet this season.

No. 2: Glenbard coach Jason Hawkins believes his team is peaking at the right time. The 2012 state title winner has had an up-and-down season, but Hawkins thinks his team is putting it all together with the state playoffs approaching. Glenbard finished 16-10 this season in the IHSHL West Division.

No. 3: BGHW, which includes players from Buffalo Grove, Hersey and Wheeling, is on a roll following a sweep of Maine Township in the IHSHL North/Central Division. The team, known as the Stampede, advances to face Highland Park in matchup of two of the area’s top-scoring teams. The Stampede and the Giants split two meetings this season, with BGHW winning most recently, 5-2 on Jan. 29.
