TODAY'S GAME: The Brampton Beast, the ECHL affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens, hope to bounce back after a Game Two loss and get their revenge against the Manchester Monarchs in the first of three games at SNHU Arena on Monday night.
MANCHESTER MEMORIES: During the regular season, the Beast made only one visit to SNHU Arena in Manchester and skated away with a 6-5 overtime victory on February 24. Chris Leveille led the way with two goals nd an assist, while David Pacan netted a pair of goals and David Vallorani added three helpers. Reggie Traccitto scored 23 seconds into OT to tive the Beast the win.
A WELL DISCIPLINED TEAM: Of all remaining teams in the Kelly Cup Playoffs, the Beast are the least penalized team in the ECHL. Brampton has been assessed only 68 minutes in penalties through eight games played, an average of only 8.5 PIMs per game. The Beast and the Fort Wayne Komets are the only remaining teams who have yet to take a major penalty or a misconduct.
SHOOTING FROM THE BLUE LINE: Jordan Henry and Willie Corrin rank one and two in shots on goal among defensemen with 35 and 25 respectively.
