TODAY'S GAME: The Brampton Beast, the ECHL affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens, look to build on the momentum from their superb 3-0 win over Florida Everblades Sunday as they host the Adirondack Thunder at 11:00AM.
GETTING CLOSER: With their win over Florida on Sunday afternoon, the Beast have now reached 31 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.
TOUGH NORTH DIVISION: With Sunday afternoon's shutout victory, the Beast are now in second place in the North Division with 69 points. The Manchester Monarchs remain in first with 70 points, while the Thunder sit in third with 68 points. The Reading Royals currently occupy the fourth and final playoff spot in the division with 65 points, while the reigning Eastern Conference champs, the Wheeling Nailers, are on the outside looking in with 60 points.
PACKED HOUSE: The Beast will be playing the Thunder today in front of a jam-packed sell out crowd of 5,020 screaming kids at the Powerade Centre for the Beast's final school day game of the 2016-2017 season.
ONE HECK OF A MONTH: David Pacan tore up the competition in the month of February. The Beast's goals leader scored seemingly at will, with 11 goals and 10 assists in 13 games played so far. He's currently tied for the lead in the ECHL scoring race with Peter Sivak from the Alaska Aces with 32 goals. Pacan also holds the team's highest shooting percentage, scoring on 22.2% of shot attempts.
HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT: Beast netminder Zach Fucale stopped all 42 shots he faced Sunday in the Beast's 3-0 win over the Eastern Conference's No 1. team, the Florida Everblades. His superb performance earned the Montreal Canadiens draft pick his second career ECHL shutout. His first shutout of the season came on Dec. 17, making 26 saves to blank the Adirondack Thunder.
A TRIO OF CLUTCH PERFORMERS: The Beast have scoring depth across all three of their forward lines, with a trio of clutch players emerging of late. Three players on the Beast are tied for the most game winning goals. David Vallorani, David Pacan and Chris Auger have each scored a total of five game deciding goals for the Beast this season
