- JF Berube did not participate in the morning skate and Patrik Bartosak led the team on the ice for pre-game warm ups, so he's your start. Steve Mastalerz is your backup
- Brian O'Neill and Jeff Schultz were also held out of the morning skate, but O'Neill actually will be in for tonight's game.
- Nick Ebert is going to replace Kevin Raine for the injured Jeff Schultz.
- Adrian Kempe scored twice last game and his line was about the only bright spot in an otherwise poor effort from the rest of the road team (goalies excluded).
- Both teams had a day off yesterday and will play back-to-back tonight and tomorrow so hopefully the Monarchs are able to close out the series and they can return to ManchVegas victorious.
