Craig Point earned a spot in this week's segment with this monster shot. He put every ounce of his 238-pound frame into his windup and fired a laser past Anthony Cosmo, who couldn't even react to the shot until it was in the net.

 

 

Defenseman Brad Self raced out of the penalty box to find himself with a breakaway opportunity. After one stick fake to Cosmo's right, he buries a goal past the netminder inches before his foot touches inside the crease. The play was originally ruled a crease violation, but overturned after a successful challenge.

 

 

Rochester native Joe Walters got his hometown fans on their feet with this third-quarter goal. After juking out Glen Bryan, Walters goes up top to give his Knighthawks a slim lead. 

 

 

Not every Top Play candidate has to be a goal. We give a little love to the defense this week thanks to Matt Vinc and Dylan Evans. After a kick-save by Vinc, Evans catches a Bandit with his head down and makes him pay.

 

 

Stephen Keogh faked a pick and was wide open in front of the net to receive a behind-the-back pass from Casey Powell before netting a bounce-shot between Cosmo's legs. He finished the game with a hat trick.
