Veteran forward Jeff Taffe capped off the 2010-11 season perfectly, helping Rockford win all four contests in Week 27 and recording at least a point in each game. Taffe ended the week with three-straight multi-point games to give him a team-high 14 on the season.

Then, the 30 year-old tallied a goal and assist in Rockford 4-2 win on Saturday against Grand Rapids and again on Sunday at Chicago.
