TODAY'S GAME: The Brampton Beast, the ECHL affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens, are looking capture their 10th victory in their past 12 games and to end their pre-Christmas schedule on a high note as they take on the Fort Wayne Komets.
DYNAMIC DAVIDS: David Vallorani and David Pacan continue to shine on a night-to-night basis for the Brampton Beast. Vallorani, who picked up 3 helpers last night in Indy, is alone in fourth in league scoring with 16 goals and 20 assists for 36 points in 27 games while Pacan's 19 goals are the second most in the ECHL.
STEADY IN RELIEF: Andrew D'Agostini stopped all but one of the 19 shots he faced to earn his second win of the season. He entered the game early in the second period to earn a rare relief win. He will get the start between the pipes tonight against a tough Komets squad that, like the Beast, have won three games in a row.
GAME TWO: The Beast and the Komets have already met once this season with the Beast coming away victorious with an exciting 5-4 overtime victory at the Powerade Centre. David Pacan led the way with three points (1G, 2A) including the OT winner.
HIGH FLYING OFFENSE: With an electric five-goal outburst against Indy last night, the Beast have eclipsed the 100-goal mark and currently sit with 104 goals scored in 27 games played. Only three teams in the ECHL, the Toledo Walleye (112), the Orlando Solar Bears (110) and the Manchester Monarchs (107) have more goals than the Beast.
DECEMBER TO REMEMBER: The Brampton Beast continue to build upon a record month for wins. Their 5-4 victory over Indy was their 9th December triumph (9-2). Prior to December 2016, the most victories this franchise recorded in one month was six in November 2015. The Beast still have three more games to play before January 2017.
TIED FOR SECOND: The Beast are currently tied with the Adirondack Thunder for second in the North Division with 35 points in 27 games played. The Komets are in a similar place in the Central Division with 35 points in 26 games played, good for third place.
