TONIGHT'S MATCHUP: The Adirondack Thunder hit the road for a pair of games this weekend in Manchester against the division-leading Monarchs. Adirondack enters the weekend off of a pair of overtime victories last week, most recently a 3-2 win over Wheeling on Sunday afternoon in Glens Falls.
HEAD OVERTIME HEELS: The Adirondack Thunder have played more than the scheduled 60 minutes in each of their last four games. The Thunder have posted a 2-2 record in those games, with the two victories coming in their last two games on Friday and Saturday. Adirondack has won three consecutive games in overtime once in franchise history, coming in March 2016 with wins over Norfolk, South Carolina and Manchester.
HIGH FIVE IN SEVEN: The Thunder took eight of a possible 10 points from five games last week, played over a seven-day stretch. The Thunder defeated Brampton, Reading and Wheeling and earned points against Worcester and Manchester. On Saturday, Adirondack improved to 7-6-2 in the second game of back-to-back sets this season and Sunday's win pushed it to 4-2-1 in the third game of a three-in-three.
TIP OF THE ICEBERGIN: Adirondack defenseman Desmond Bergin scored the game-winning goal in overtime on Sunday as he extended his goal streak to three games. Bergin has now netted 13 goals this season, tied for third in the ECHL amongst defensemen. The Harvard graduate has collected 36 points (13-23-36) on the season, tied for sixth leaguewide in points by a blueliner.
WALL-IN STREET: Thunder forward Terrence Wallin collected a goal and an assist in Sunday's win over Wheeling, his second multi-point effort over his last three games. The 6-0 winger, who tallied his fourth power-play goal of the season in the first period, has now collected 39 points (18-21-39) from 44 games played on the season. Wallin ranks third on the team in goals scored and fourth in total points.
DYNAMIC DEFENSEMEN: Adirondack welcomes back defensemen Mathieu Brodeur and Colton White to the lineup this evening. Brodeur has amassed 22 points (3-19-22) in 35 ECHL games this season and rejoins the team from the AHL's Utica Comets, his third AHL stint of the season. White, who was reassigned from the AHL's Binghamton Devils, has collected two goals and two assists in nine games this season with the Thunder.
MAN OH MANTHA: Goaltender Olivier Mantha was added to the Thunder roster this week after he finished his collegiate career with Alaska-Anchorage. Mantha, who was assigned to Adirondack after he signed an AHL contract with the Syracuse Crunch, left the Seawolves as the program's all-time leader in saves and games played by a goaltender and netted a .908 save percentage over four NCAA seasons.
