TODAY'S GAME: The Brampton Beast, the ECHL affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens, will attempt to end their five-game home winless skid as they face off against the Kalamazoo Wings on Beast Bachelor Night.
THE ALL-STAR: Beast leading scorer David Vallorani made a resounding statement that he is one of the elite talents in the league as he scored two goals to help propel the ECHL All-Stars to a thrilling 8-7 victory over the Adirondack Thunder on Wednesday night at the Glens Falls Civic Centre.
BUSTING A SLUMP: Seven days after they ended their seven-game losing streak to the Kalamazoo Wings, the Brampton Beast have another opportunity to bump a slump against the K-Wings. A win over Kalamazoo on Friday night would give the Beast their first home victory over this rival since a 7-3 decision on January 10, 2016.
POTENT KILL: The Brampton Beast penalty kill continues to shine even though the club has been hit with a case of the January blues (2-4-1-0). Their 90.3 percent kill rate in January is nearly four points higher than their sctintillating season average of 86.7 percent.
BREAKING A TIE: The Brampton Beast have a chance to regain sole posession of second place in the North Division tonight. This objective can be achieved with a win over Kalamazoo combined with a Reading Royals loss to the Adirondack Thunder.
ONE MORE ASSIST: Beast Captain Brandon Marino enters this game with 51 assists — a mark that ties him with forward Jason Pitton for the all-time franchise lead. The 30-year-old will attempt to break the deadlock in this contest. He is coming off of a one-goal and one-assist performance against the Toledo Walleye.
MAGIC NUMBER THREE: The Brampton Beast boast a nearly invincible record of 16-0-1 — an astonishing 97.1 winning percentage — in games where they hold their opponent to three goals or less. Every other team in the ECHL has suffered at least one regulation loss in spite of limiting their opponent to fewer than four goals.
