The Monarchs are only dressing 16 skaters tonight thanks to the Kings callups and injuries to Zach O'Brien, Brian O'Neill, Ian O'Connor, and Nick Shore. I'll try to bring in-game updates in this thread.

Game Notes

- Monarchs (10-3-1-2) are 1st in the Atlantic division and 1st in the Eastern conference. Admirals (8-5-0-3) are 4th in the East division and 6th in the Eastern conference.

- Monarchs are coming off of a 4-1 loss to the Portland Pirates last night while the Admirals are coming off of a 4-3 victory over the Providence Bruins. Thankfully they traded away last night's number one star and their leading scorer, Peter Holland, to the Toronto Maple Leafs today.

- Monarchs are 4-1-1-0 at home this season. Admirals are 6-2-0-2.

- In one previous game this season (last Wednesday), the Monarchs won 3-1.

- Here's how the Monarchs will line-up tonight:

Nicolas Deslauriers - Jordan Weal - Brandon Kozun

Andy Andreoff - Scott Sabourin - Sean Backman

Maxim Kitsyn - Robert Czarnik - Hunter Bishop

There is no fourth line due to a shortage of warm bodies.
