Manchester Monarchs (4-1-0) face the Binghamton Senators (3-2-1) today. The Monarchs had a solid effort last night, beating the Sharks 5-1. Binghamton out-shot the Portland Pirates on Saturday, but only managed to score shorthanded goals in the 4-2 loss.
The Senators have a bunch of exciting young players, some of whom are still getting used to the back-to-back schedule in the AHL. They are close to the league leaders in averaging 33 shots a game. The Monarchs have been great at limiting shots against with their strong forecheck, so we'll see what happens when these teams clash.
OUT: Nolan, Meckler, Weal, and O'Neill are scratched again.
Smoked meat and poutine day in Manchester! Canadian heritage is so tasty. Game on!
