WHERE WE STAND Manchester and Adirondack are tied for 1st in the North Division with 24 points each. Despite being tied in points, the two teams enter tonight's game in different spots, with the Monarchs grabbing only one point in their last three games (0-2-1-0), while the Thunder have taken points in four consecutive games (3-0-0-1).
OPPOSITES ATTRACT The Monarchs enter tonight's game with the third-most road victories across the ECHL, with six wins away from home. Surprisingly, the Thunder are tied for the second-fewest home wins in the league with two.
GETTING OFFENSIVE Tonight's game will feature three of the most offensive defensemen in the ECHL in Manchester's Justin Agosta and David Kolomatis and Adirondack's Mathieu Brodeur. All three blue-liners enter the game with 15 points, tied for 3rd amongst defensemen.
SPECIAL TEAMS SHOWDOWN Manchester will step inside the Glens Falls Civic Center tied for 2nd in the ECHL in power-play percentage, converting 25% of their man advantages overall as well as on the road. It will be a fight tonight, as Adirondack enters the game with the 2nd ranked home penalty-killing unit, fending off opposing power plays at 94.1%.
2nd PERIOD SCORING Adirondack has been stingy this year when it comes to allowing goals, having given up only 46 goals this season, tied for the sixth fewest in the ECHL. Inside that number, the Thunder are tied for the fewest goals against in the first period (8) and have allowed the fewest goals (10) across the league in the 3rd period. The good thing is that the Monarchs have scored the most 2nd period goals of any team in the league (32), while the Thunder have given up the second-most middle frame goals, surrendering 24.
