TODAY'S GAME: The Brampton Beast, the ECHL affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens, hope to make it three wins in a row against North Division opponents as they head to Glens Falls to take on the Adirondack Thunder.
PLAYING WELL: The Beast are red hot of late and have collected wins in nine of their last 11 contests. The Beast have suffered one regulation loss in their last 11 games and haven't scored less than three goals in a single game since Jan. 28.
HEAD TO HEAD MATCHUPS: The Beast and the Thunder have met three times this season and the Beast hold a 2-1-0-0 record against Adirondack thus far this season. Peter MacArthur (1G, 3A) leads the way for the Thunder against the Beast this season, while David Pacan (3G, 2A) has five points against Adirondack. After tonight's game, the Beast and the Thunder will meet fortwo more games, one in Brampton on Feb. 28 and the last in Adirondack on March 12.
GETTING CLOSER: The Beast have now reached 30 victories for the first time in their ECHL history. They now have their sights set on the club's franchise wins record, set at 33 victories by the 2013-14 Central Hockey League squad.
PACAN'S THE MAN: Forward David Pacan scored a pair of goals on Friday against Manchester, giving him 31 on the season and setting a new single-season goal-scoring record, eclipsing the previous record of 29 set by Andrew Fournier in the 2013-14 CHL season. He is now tied with Allen's Chad Costello for second in ECHL scoring, one back of the league lead held by Alaska's Peter Sivak.
TOUGH NORTH DIVISION: With Friday night's win against Manchester, the Beast are now in second place in the North Division with 66 points. The Monarchs remain in first with 68 points, while the Thunder sit in third, also with 66 points but less victories. The Reading Royals currently occupy the fourth and final playoff spot in the division with 65 points.
STREAKY BEAST: Several members of the Beast are continuing to assemble impressive individual numbers of late, including Brandon Marino, who is on a seven-game point streak (2G, 7A), and Brandon MacLean, who is on a six-game streak (2G, 6A).
