TODAY'S GAME: The Brampton Beast, the ECHL affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens, hope get back on the winning track as they head to the Huntington Center to face the Toledo Walleye.
GETTING CLOSER: With their win over Adirondack last Tuesday morning, the Beast have now reached 32 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.
HEAD TO HEAD MATCHUP: The Beast have faced the Walleye eight times thus far this season and have fared well, posting a 3-3-1-1 record. The Beast have won the last two contests between these two clubs, including a 3-1 victory at the Powerade Centre on Feb. 10 and a 5-4 overtime victory in Toledo on Feb. 11. David Pacan (3G, 5A) leads the way against the Walleye with eight points in six games played.
STEADY SCORING: The Beast have scored three or more goals in an impressive 15 consecutive games.
MORE RECORDS TO BE BROKEN? Beast Captain Brandon Marino already took over the Beast all-time assist record earlier this season and now he has his eyes on a bigger prize. Marino is just five points back of tying Jason Pitton for the club's all-time points record, currently set at 100. Pitton set the mark with 136 games played. Marino recorded his 95 points through only 96 games played.
TIGHT NORTH DIVISION: The Beast are now in second place in the North Division with 71 points. The Manchester Monarchs have surged back to the top spot with 73 points. The Reading Royals are in third place with 69 points, while the Adirondack Thunder are right behind them in fourth place with 68 points. Still fighting to crack the top four are the Wheeling Nailers, currently in fifth place with 62 points.
LEAGUE LEADERS: David Pacan is now alone atop the league goal-scoring race with 33 goals. David Vallorani is tied for seventh in league points with 65 (25G, 40A). Zach Fucale is tied for fourth in shutouts with three and tied for fifth in wins with 22.
