Manchester Monarchs Weekend: Bridgeport Sound Tigers And Providence Bruins

He's back! - Christian Petersen

The Monarchs are coming off a fine bounce-back 4-1 win over the IceCaps on Wednesday.

This Weekend's Games

Tonight, Nov. 9th, 4 p.m. PT -- Bridgeport Sound Tigers

Saturday Nov. 10th, 4 p.m. PT -- Providence Bruins

After beating St. John's, the Monarchs improved to 6-2-1. Peter Mannino played well in his first start, earning a win over his old club. He was especially good in a crucial 5v3 penalty kill in the middle of the game. Kozun had two goals and remains the team's leading scorer.

The Monarchs haven't seen the Tigers since beating them 2-0 in the preseason. They are led by two potent scorers on the top line. Center Brock Nelson already has five goals, and erstwhile NHLer Nino Niederreiter has six. Their game plan is to be physical and aggressive from the first puck drop.

Monarchs Scoring Leaders

  • Brandon Kozun, 9 games: 4G, 6A, 20 shots, 1.11 PPG
  • Tyler Toffoli, 9 games: 4G, 2A, 23 shots, .67 PPG

Injuries

Loktionov is back in the lineup. Nolan (who broke a finger early in the season) is close, but there is no firm date for his return. David Kolomatis and Andrew Campbell are out 6 weeks after surgery. Stefan Legein took an elbow to the head on Wednesday and had to leave the game. He's sitting out tonight as a precautionary measure.

In net: Nilsson versus Jones.
