TODAY'S GAME: The Brampton Beast, the ECHL affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens, will end their regular season schedule against their North Division rivals, the Manchester Monarchs.
UP IN THE AIR: The Beast's first round opponent is still to be determined. Depending on the result of tonight's contest, plus the Reading/Norfolk game tonight, the Beast could place anywhere from second to fourth place in the North Division and could face either of their three divisional foes, the Adirondack Thunder, Reading Royals or the Manchester Monarchs.
HERE'S HOW THE DIVISION LOOKS: The Adirondack Thunder have locked up the North Division title and currently sit with 91 points. The Reading Royals have taken over second place in the division with 86 points. The Beast also have 86 points, but Reading owns the tiebreaker, pushing the Beast to third place. The Manchester Monarchs currently sit in fourth place in the division, one point back of the Beast and Royals with 85 points. All teams have played 71 games.
IMPRESSIVE PERFORMANCE: Beast goaltender Andrew D'Agostini may have allowed four goals a night ago but he was sensational between the pipes, making 37 saves in a 4-1 loss. His 37 saves are the most he has recorded in a game this season.
HEAD TO HEAD STATS: The Beast and the Monarchs have only met twice this season , including last night's contest. The Beast currently own a 1-1-0-0 record after last night's 4-1 loss. The only players to record points in both games against Manchester are Chris Leveille (2GP, 2G, 2A) and Chris Auger (2GP, 1G, 1A). David Vallorani has also played well against Manchester (2GP, 3A).
RECORDS WILL BE SET: Tonight marks the final night of the season for current Beast skaters to push their records to new heights before the end of the regular season. David Pacan (81 PTS) and David Vallorani (82 PTS) will duke it out to be the club's single-season points record holder, while Pacan will look to break the tie atop the league goal-scoring leaderboard. He and Florida's Brendan O'Donnell are tied with 40 goals each.
PEAKING AT THE RIGHT TIME: Several Beast skaters have put up impressive individial numbers in the final week of the regular season. Chris Auger has two goals and two assists during a three-game point streak. Chris Leveille has three assists in his last two games.
