    Monarchs Jonesing For A Win

    MANCHESTER, NH – Three goals by three different players elevated the Manchester Monarchs to a 3-2 victory over the Hartford Wolf Pack at the Verizon Wireless Arena on Friday night.

    Manchester (7-3-1-1) is ranked second in the Atlantic Division with 16 points. Hartford (3-7-2-1) is in fifth place in the Atlantic Division with nine points.

    “Again we had a solid first (period) and a better third,” said Monarchs Head Coach Mark Morris. “We’re striving for consistency. With a full roster, everyone is jockeying for a position and playing time. This is a great time to keep playing at a high pace. We have four solid lines and a full contingent of solid AHL defenseman and two great goaltenders. That’s a healthy thing. Guys have to play well to stay in the line-up.”

    The Monarchs advanced their lead to 3-1 at 13:23 of the third period. Defenseman Alec Martinez danced around the Hartford defense and fired a slap shot from the slot. Goaltender Chad Johnson shut down the shot but could not contain it as left wing Bud Holloway capitalized on the rebound opportunity and lifted the puck past the glove of the netminder for his second tally of the season.

    Defenseman Jake Muzzin and center Andrei Loktionov, both returned from the Los Angeles Kings this week, collaborated to give the Monarchs an early lead in the first period. Center Corey Elkins battled for the puck along the right wing boards after Loktionov sent him a pass. Elkins managed to rescue the puck from Wolf Pack defenders and deliver it to Muzzin at the right point. The rookie defenseman fired his ammo past the right side of Johnson for his first goal of the season.

    With 15 minutes played in the second period, the Wolf Pack gained possession of the puck and travelled into the Monarchs’ territory. Hartford center Tim Kennedy fed the puck through slot to left wing Brodie Dupont who redirected the feed past netminder Martin Jones for his first goal of the season and tied the game at 1-1.

    At 17:56 of the middle frame, the Monarchs found themselves back in the right corner of Hartford’s zone. Loktionov retained possession and fed the puck up to defenseman David Kolomatis who was open at the right point. Kolomatis snapped a diagonal shot from the blueline that snuck over Johnson’s left shoulder for his first goal of the season.

    The Wolf Pack continued to put up a fight until the very end as they came within one goal at 18:50 of the third stanza. Kennedy retained the puck in the trapezoid and snuck the puck up to right wing Mats Zuccarello who positioned himself to the right of Jones. Zuccarello then redirected Kennedy’s pass right past Jones for his third goal of the season.

    Jones (2-0-0) earned his second win of the season with 25 saves on 27 shots. Johnson (2-8-1) took his eighth loss of the season stopping 37-of-40 shots on goal.

    Manchester was 2-for-6 on the power play. Hartford was 1-for-4 with the man advantage.

    Notables: The Monarchs surpass their former season high of shots with 40 tonight …The Monarchs have outshot their opponent in nine of their first 12 games this season…Defenseman Jake Muzzin scored tonight in his first game back from Los Angeles…Muzzin’s goal at 2:02 of the first period is the fastest goal from the beginning of the game this season…Defenseman Alec Martinez lengthens his point streak to four games, a new season-high point streak…Defenseman David Kolomatis scored his first goal of the season.

    Penalties Kill

    WORCESTER, MA – Three power play goals against were the Manchester Monarchs downfall as the Worcester Sharks skated away with the 3-2 win at the DCU Center on Saturday night.

    Manchester (7-4-1-1) is ranked second in the Atlantic Division with 16 points. Worcester (5-3-1-2) is in fourth place in the Atlantic Division with 13 points.

    “It was a typical back-and-fourth, high tempo game,” said Monarchs Head Coach Mark Morris. “It was a hard fought affair and we were on the wrong end of some of (Worcester’s) fortunate bounces. We clanked one off the post in the third that could have given us the upper hand tonight. We have to stay out of the box and take advantage of our power plays. Give credit to (Alex) Stalock; he played a stellar game for them.”

    Defenseman Sean Sullivan scored the eventual game-winning goal at the 14-minute mark of the final period. Center Steven Zalewski received the puck from defenseman Mike Moore at the left point and put a shot on net. Monarchs goaltender Jeff Zatkoff made the pad save and directed the puck toward the corner. Sullivan was on the left doorstep to pick up the loose puck. As he skated behind the net, Sullivan flipped the puck at the goaltender. The puck deflected off of Zatkoff’s right side and into the goal for the Sharks third power play tally of the game.

    Following a scoreless first period, the second frame saw four goals scored starting with Sharks right wing Jonathan Cheechoo’s fifth goal of the season at 2:55. Skating on the power play, Sullivan fired a shot from the left point that bounced wide of the net. Forward James Marcou backhanded the puck from behind the cage and into the slot. Cheechoo took two swipes at the puck before it beat Zatkoff to give Worcester the 1-0 lead.

    Less than two minutes later, left wing Brandon Mashinter doubled the Sharks lead with his fourth goal of the season and his team’s second power play goal of the game. Cycling the puck, defenseman Matt Irwin sent a pass from the left wing half wall to Zalewski in the bottom left wing corner. Zalewski quickly found Mashinter at the bottom inside corner of the left face-off circle for a one-timer that beat Zatkoff.

    Left wing Ray Kaunisto put the Monarchs on the board at 8:02 of the middle frame with his second goal of the season. Defenseman Jake Muzzin carried the puck out of the Monarchs zone, through neutral territory and over the Sharks blueline before he was tangled up by a Sharks player. Moments before getting held up, Muzzin nudged the puck ahead and past the Sharks defender. Kaunisto, who was skating with Muzzin, picked up the loose puck and skated in on netminder Alex Stalock all alone. At the top of the crease, Kaunisto pulled the puck over to his backhand and flipped it into the net to cut the Sharks lead in half, 2-1.

    At 14:41 of the second stanza, center Oscar Moller tallied his first goal of the season to tie the game at 2-2. Kaunisto kept the puck in the zone along the right wing boards and handed it off to left wing Dwight King who circled through the right wing face-off circle before wristing a shot on net. While stationed in front of Stalock, Moller redirected the puck into the net to tie the game.

    Zatkoff (4-4-1) took his fourth loss of the season with 25 saves on 28 shots. Stalock (4-4-1) earned his fourth win of the season stopping 18-of-20 shots on goal.

    Manchester was 0-for-5 on the power play. Worcester was 3-for-5 with the man advantage.

    Notables: The Monarchs recorded 20 shots on goal, the fewest shots on goal this season…The Sharks three power play goals against were the most the Monarchs have given up this season…Defenseman Alec Martinez’s four-game point streak came to an end as he was held off the scoreboard tonight…Center Oscar Moller netted his first goal of the season.

    The Monarchs will hold a rematch with the Sharks at the Verizon Wireless Arena on Friday, November 12 at 7:00 p.m. Catch all of the play-by-play action of Monarchs hockey with Ken Cail on the Monarchs Radio Network WGAM 900/1250 AM and at www.manchestermonarchs.com.

    StaLOCKS Out Monarchs

    MANCHESTER, NH – A penalty-driven game ended with the Manchester Monarchs falling to the Worcester Sharks, 3-1, at the Verizon Wireless Arena on Friday night.

    Manchester (7-5-1-1) is ranked second in the Atlantic Division with 16 points. Worcester (6-3-1-2) is in third place in the Atlantic Division with 15 points.

    “We didn’t manage the puck and it cost us,” explained Monarchs Head Coach Mark Morris after Friday evening’s loss to Worcester. “We have to do a better job taking care of the puck. When you outshoot [your opponent] like that, you have to produce.”

    Right wing Benn Ferreiro’s second period tally put the Sharks up 2-0 and served as the eventual game-winning goal. Ferreiro crossed the Monarchs blueline on a breakaway and streaked down the right wing toward the net. At the bottom of the right wing circle, Ferreiro snapped a wrist shot that beat Monarchs goaltender Jeff Zatkoff top shelf at 13:28 of the second period. Ferreiro’s eighth goal of the season was assisted by defenseman Sean Sullivan and right wing Jonathan Cheechoo on the power play.

    Sullivan recorded his third goal of the season with a one-timer from the high slot at 9:17 of the second period to give the Sharks a 1-0 advantage. Crossing over the Monarchs blueline, left wing Brandon Mashinter passed the puck to right wing Dan DaSilva who carried it behind Zatkoff’s cage. DaSilva fed a pass to Sullivan in the high slot for the first goal of the game.

    Defenseman Alec Martinez scored his fourth goal of the season, a power play goal, at 2:23 of the third period to bring the Monarchs to within one goal. Center Justin Azevedo passed the puck from behind the Sharks net to left wing Bud Holloway who found Martinez streaking through the slot. The defenseman ripped a wrist shot past goaltender Alex Stalock to put the Monarchs on the scoreboard.

    Ferreiro tallied his second goal of the evening and his ninth goal in 10 games at 15:20 of the third period. Left wing T.J. Trevelyan skated up the left wing and passed the puck to Cheechoo in the slot. Cheechoo snapped a wrist shot toward the net that was initially blocked by Zatkoff. The ensuing rebound was put home by Ferreiro on the right doorstep to give the Sharks the 3-1 lead.

    Zatkoff (4-5-1) took his fifth loss of the season with 16 saves on 19 shots. Stalock (5-4-1) earned his fifth win of the season, stopping 37-of-38 shots on goal.

    Manchester was 1-for-9 on the power play. Worcester was 1-for-6 with the man advantage.

    Notables: The Monarchs three-game home streak of collecting at least one point in a game came to an end in tonight’s regulation loss…The last time the Monarchs lost a game when outshooting their opponent was October 17, 2010 against Springfield…Left wing Richard Clune’s 26 penalty minutes is the most penalty minutes in a single game by any Monarchs player this season.

    The Monarchs will host the Providence Bruins at the Verizon Wireless Arena on Saturday, November 13 at 7:00 p.m. The Monarchs Care Foundation is asking fans to bring in unwanted coats for families in need this winter. E&R Cleaners will be collecting the coats on the front plaza and will clean them before the Monarchs deliver them to local charities.

    One Is The Loneliest Number

    MANCHESTER, NH – Two early goals against took the wind out of the Manchester Monarchs sails as they fell to the Providence Bruins, 3-1, at the Verizon Wireless Arena on Saturday night.

    Manchester (7-6-1-1) dropped to third place in the Atlantic Division with 16 points. Providence (6-6-1-1) is in fifth place in the Atlantic Division with 14 points.

    “We can’t make excuses, we weren’t mentally tough tonight,” explained Monarchs Head Coach Mark Morris. “We started turning over the puck at the beginning of the game and gave them the momentum. They gained confidence from there.

    Center Levi Nelson’s first period goal gave the Bruins a 2-0 advantage and served as the game-winning goal. The Bruins showed no mercy as Nelson tallied his third goal of the season only 50 seconds after defenseman Yury Alexandrov netted the first goal of the game. Nelson stole the puck from Monarchs defenseman David Kolomatis in the neutral zone and continued toward the goal. Manchester defenseman Alec Martinez got in the way and tried to halt his momentum but Nelson managed to get the wrist shot off and the puck slipped through the legs of goaltender Martin Jones. Center Wyatt Smith picked up the lone assist on the goal.

    Alexandrov lit the lamp at 3:19 of the first period to give the Bruins the early lead. Center Jamie Arniel fought for the puck with a Monarchs defenseman in the trapezoid. Once he gained control, Arniel dished it off to right wing Kirk MacDonald in the left corner. MacDonald skated away from the boards and directed the puck up to Alexandrov at the right point where the defenseman one-timed it right over the shoulder of Jones.

    At 6:58 in the third period defenseman Matt Bartkowski fired a slap shot from the left point that flew right past Jones and put the Bruins up 3-0. Center Zach Hamill fought for the puck behind the net and found Arniel open on the power play. Arniel slid the puck back to Bartkowski at the blueline for a blast that ended in his second goal of the season.

    Defenseman Viatcheslav Voynov recorded his second goal of the season at the 28-second mark of the third period to put the Monarchs on the scoreboard. Voynov gained control of the puck in the Monarchs’ zone and carried it up the ice. After successfully crossing the blueline, the Monarchs defenseman fired an off-balanced wrist shot from the slot that sailed over goaltender Michael Hutchinson’s right shoulder.

    Jones (2-1-0) took his first loss of the season with 30 saves on 33 shots. Hutchinson (3-2-0) earned his third win of the season, stopping 24-of-25 shots on goal.

    Manchester was 0-for-6 on the power play. Providence was 1-for-6 with the man advantage.

    Notables: The Monarchs have dropped three consecutive games for the first time this season…Manchester’s longest franchise losing streak is four games and that has happened three times: November 3-13, 2001, December 16-20, 2008 and March 7-17, 2010...The Monarchs had a winning streak of 10-0-0-0 against the Bruins on home ice that ended with the 3-1 loss tonight…Defenseman Viatcheslav Voynov’s second goal of the season moved him into a tie for sixth place on the Monarchs roster with eight points (2-6=8).

    Smart Alec Scores All "A's"

    MANCHESTER, NH – Three different Manchester Monarchs players had multiple point games as they defeated the Springfield Falcons by a score of 4-2 at the Verizon Wireless Arena on Sunday afternoon.

    With the victory, Manchester (8-6-1-1) improved to second place in the Atlantic Division with 18 points. Springfield (8-6-0-1) falls to a tie for third place in the Atlantic Division with 17 points.

    “We were moving in the wrong direction,” said Monarchs Head Coach Mark Morris in reference to Manchester’s two game losing streak entering Sunday’s game. “Today was encouraging. The effort was there from the get-go. It was good to see our guys respond and be rewarded for sticking in there for the full 60 minutes.”

    Center Andrei Loktionov scored the game-winning goal at 16:42 of the third period. Following an offensive zone face-off win by center Oscar Moller, the Monarchs cycled the puck back to the point. The puck eventually found the stick of left wing Dwight King, positioned along the right wing boards. King slid the puck back to the point for defenseman Alec Martinez to fire a powerful shot on goal. Falcons goaltender Gustav Wesslau could not corral the blast, as the puck trickled away from the lunging netminder’s grasp. At the left post, Loktionov put back the rebound to give the Monarchs a 3-2 lead late in the third period.

    Left wing Matt Calvert scored his seventh goal of the season, a shorthanded marker, at 12:07 of the first period. A turnover in the neutral zone by the Monarchs proved costly, as Calvert carried the intercepted puck across the blueline on a breakaway. A quick deke at the top of the crease slid Monarchs goaltender Jeff Zatkoff out of position and allowed Calvert to score into the empty net, giving Springfield the early 1-0 lead.

    Center Ben Guite scored his second goal of the season to give the Falcons a 2-0 lead at 8:02 of the second period. Offensive-zone play was initiated down low by Calvert, who wristed a pass back to the point to defenseman John Moore. With an open lane, Moore fired a slap shot into the slot where it was redirected by Guite, positioned at the top of the goal crease.

    Left wing Bud Holloway scored his second goal of the season at 11:39 of the second period. Martinez, positioned at the left point, sent the puck along the blueline to defenseman Thomas Hickey. A wrist shot toward the net struck a Falcons defender near the right post. The puck caromed across to the left post where Holloway was positioned in front of the wide open net. With force, Holloway fired the puck into the net to cut the Falcons lead in half in the second period.

    Holloway scored his second goal of the evening at 10:18 of the third period. Firmly entrenched in the offensive zone, defenseman Patrick Mullen skated in from the right wing, around the net and directly to the left point. A quick feed to his right was collected by his defensive partner Martinez. With his third assist on the night, Martinez fired a slap shot on goal from the point that caught the blade of Holloway’s stick. The deflection beat Wesslau to knot the game at 2-2 in the middle of the third period.

    Moller gave the Monarchs an insurance tally with 24 seconds remaining in the third period. With the extra man on the ice, Guite attempted to cycle the puck over to Calvert. The puck caught Calvert’s skate and the ensuing deflection fell onto the stick of defenseman Viatcheslav Voynov who cleared the puck toward the wide open neutral zone. A sprinting King collected Voynov’s feed and connected with Moller on a pass off of the right wing boards. Skating unopposed to the right face-off circle, Moller flipped the puck into the empty cage for his first goal of the season.

    Zatkoff (5-5-1) earned the victory in goal for the Monarchs, making 16 saves on 18 shots on goal. Wesslau (1-1-0) took his first loss of the season, halting 37-of-40 shots on net.

    Manchester was 1-for-10 on the power play. Springfield was 0-for-2 with the man advantage.

    Notables: The Monarchs collected their first win of the season when trailing after the second period…Defenseman Alec Martinez recorded three assists for the second time this season, also tying a team season-high in points in the process…Left wing Bud Holloway’s last two-goal game came on January 24, 2010 against the Hershey Bears…Center Oscar Moller’s empty net marker was his first goal of the season…The Monarchs allowed their first shorthanded goal on home ice this season.

    The Monarchs will host the Hartford Wolf Pack at the Verizon Wireless Arena on Wednesday, November 17 at 11:00 a.m. Catch all of the play-by-play action of Monarchs hockey with Ken Cail on the Monarchs Radio Network WGAM 900/1250 AM and at www.manchestermonarchs.com.

    I wasn't impressed with either team actually. And I couldn't help bitching about Willsie even though he has nothing to do with this franchise anymore. Regardless, I thought the game was sloppy and I didn't see much of a difference, player wise, between the AHL and the ECHL. In fact, Reading puts together a much better fan experience than Hershey does.

    Just a few comments based on the game:
    Kolomatis: is horrible. A perpetual turnover machine.
    Hickey: I can definately understand why he is not in the NHL. He seemed very indecisive and he gets pushed around something fierce.
    Nolan: Can't stay on his skates, but definately tried.
    Cliche: The best player for Manchester, imo.
    Clune: It's the CLUNATIC! Constantly trying to light a fire under his team.
    King: Invisible

    The Bears are dirty. I saw more slashing to hands in this one game then I have seen in a long time. I swear that was the Bears main defensive tactic. Slash hands and make them lose puck.

    I'm glad Souray was injured because that guy's high level of ****headedness is teh suck.

    It was a sell-out but you wouldn't have known it by the crowd reaction. What a bunch of stiffs. There was virtually no noise in the stadium, the parking lot, the vendor area...it was really freakin' weird. Everyone sat on their hands all night.

    It was fun being the only two people in the building cheering for Manchester.
    You were not the only two cheering the Monarchs, there was 6 of us from the Monarchs booster Club suffering along with you.
