TODAY'S GAME: The Brampton Beast, the ECHL affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens, are hoping to extend their franchise-record winning streak to seven games as they play the first of two at WesBanco Arena against the Wheeling Nailers.
KEEP THE WINS COMING: The Beast are hot of late, winning six in a row for the first time in franchise history. The Beast have outscored their opponents 30-17 during this stretch. The club has scored four or more goals in five of the six wins. The Beast have allowed three goals or less in four of the six games during their current streak.
APPROACHING SINGLE SEASON RECORDS…: Forwards David Vallorani and David Pacan are both on the cusp of breaking significant team records. Vallorani, who is coming off a three-point night against Indy, needs one point to be the new all-time single-season points record holder. His 55 points ties him with 2013-14's Jason Pitton. Pacan leads the team with 27 goals and is just two shy of matching the single season franchise goal record set at 29 by Andew Fournier in 2013-2014.
ANOTHER RECORD ABOUT TO BE BROKEN: Goaltender Zach Fucale needs one more victory for 19 on the season, which would break Kristofer Westblom's record of 18 wins in a single season set during the 2013-14 CHL season.
STREAKY BEAST: The Beast have three players who are currently riding impressive six-game point streaks, including David Ling (4G, 4A), Chris Leveille (3G, 5A) and Jordan Henry (3G, 7A).
HEAD-TO-HEAD MATCHUP: The Beast and the Nailers have been very evenly matched this season. Brampton owns a 3-3-0-0 record against Wheeling in 2016-17. These teams have met three times at WesBanco Arena and the Nailers have won the last two. The last time these two teams met, the Nailers shut out the Beast 4-0 on January 28.
SOLID ON THE PK: The Brampton Beast penalty kill continues to be one of the strengths of the hockey club. The Beast own a sizzling 85.6 penalty killing rate, good for second in the leage, trailing only the Greenville Swamp Rabbits at 86.0%.
