TODAY'S GAME: The Brampton Beast, the ECHL affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens, hope to bounce back after a 4-0 Game Three loss and get their revenge against the Manchester Monarchs in the second of three games at SNHU Arena on Tuesday night.
CATCHING UP ON PIMS: The Beast entered Game Three of the North Division Finals with only 68 penalty minutes to their credit through eight games played. That changed in Game Three as the Beast were dinged with 48 minutes in penalties. Mathieu Gagnon was assessed 17 minutes and a game misconduct while Mike Folkes earned 15 minutes and a game misconduct himself.
HERE ARE YOUR LEADERS: Jordan Henry remains the Beast's leading scorer heading into Game Four with eight points (3G, 5A). Luke Pither is the club's leading forward with six points (1G, 5A) in nine games played, while Brandon MacLean, the club's leading goal scorer, is third on the team with five points (4G, 1A).
FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING: The Beast failed to score a goal on Monday night, marking the first time in the club's Kelly Cup Playoff history that the club has been shut out.
THE PUCK STOPS HERE: Beast netminder Zach Fucale may have allowed four goals on 30 shots on Monday night but he remains one of the most dominant goaltenders in the Kelly Cup Playoffs. He leads all active goalies in goals against average (1.70) and save percentage (.947%) and has allowed more than two goals in a game only twice.
SHUT OUT? NO PROBLEM: The Beast were only shut out three times during the regular season and never in back-to-back games. The Beast bounced back with a four-goal output following two of their three games following being shut out.
STILL HOT ON THE PK: The Beast penalty killers have been doing a good job keeping pucks out of their net. Brampton ranks fourth in the ECHL in PK percentage, killing 91.4% (32/35) opposition opportunities.
