TODAY'S GAME: The Beast are seeking their second win in three games after falling by a 5-3 score to the Kalamazoo Wings on Friday night at the Powerade Centre. The Beast are 1-1-0-1 three games into their four-game homestand.
CHANCE TO CLIMB: A Beast win, combined with a loss by the Wheeling Nailers to the Kalamazoo Wings, will allow the Beast to take sole posession of fourth place in the North Division. A victory will also draw Brampton within two points of the Manchester Monarchs for third in the divison.
ON A ROLL: First-year Beast player David Pacan has recorded points in each of his team's last five games after being kept off the scoreboard in the season opener. He gave a standout performance with one goal and one assist against the K-Wings on Friday night.. The 25-year-old from Ottawa, Ontario has netted three goals and five assists for eight points during this run. He is tied with Luke Pither for second in team scoring.
LETHAL ATTACKER: With a goal and an assist against the K-Wings, first-year Beast player David Vallorani recorded his fourth multi-point game of the season. The 27 year old is leading his new team with four goals, five assists and nine points.
ATTACKING DEPTH: The Beast have made it clear through six games that they are more than a one-line club. There have been at least three different goal scorers for the Beast in each of the past five games. There are five players on the team averaging a point per game.
EVEN BATTLE: The Brampton Beast split four games with the Fort Wayne Komets during the 2015-16 season. Both teams won a game at home and on the road. The Beast will look to strike first again in the season series for the second year in a row as they won the first 2015-16 meeting 2-0 at the Powerade Centre on Nov. 22, 2015.
PLAYING AGGRESSIVE: The Beast will look to continue to press the attack by generating a lot of shots against a surging Fort Wayne Komets club. The Beast have shown good attacking zone form by averaging just under 34 shots a game. The Beast outshot Kalamazoo 34-24 on Friday night.
