TODAY'S GAME: The Brampton Beast, the ECHL affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens, are back on the road this weekend to make their first trip to SNHU Arena to take on the Manchester Monarchs. The Beast and the Monarchs have not yet met this season.
PLAYING WELL: The Beast are playing well of late and have collected points in 11 of their last 13 games, a run which includes a franchise record six-game winning streak. The Beast pushed their home winning streak to five games with a victory over Wheeling on Monday and haven't lost back-to-back road games since Jan. 27 and 28.
A TALE OF TWO TEAMS: The Beast enter tonight's game as the hottest team in the North Division, having compiled a 8-1-1-0 record over their last ten games. Meanwhile, the Monarchs own a 3-4-2-1 record over their last ten games played, including having lost four consecutive games.
MILESTONE ALERT: Beast goaltender Zach Fucale, who is coming off his single season franchise record-breaking 19th victory of the season on Monday, is now looking to become the first 20-game winning goaltender in club history.
GETTING CLOSER TO HISTORY: David Pacan currently sits in a tie for fourth in ECHL scoring with 29 goals, pulling him into a tie with Andrew Fournier for the Beast single-season goals record, originally set in the 2013-14 CHL season. Pacan's next goal will give him 30 on the season, which would make him the first player in franchise history to reach that plateau.
TOUGH NORTH DIVISION: The Monarchs lead the North Division with 67 points. Right behind them are the Reading Royals (65 points) in second place, followed by the Beast and the Adirondack Thunder tied for fourth (64 points), making tonight's game an important one for both squads.
STREAKY BEAST: Several members of the Beast are putting up some eye-opening individual numbers of late, including Brandon Marino, who is on a six-game point streak (2G, 6A), and Brandon MacLean, who is on a five-game streak (2G, 5A).
