Manitoba Moose, 18-23-3-2; 41 points; 7th Central; 15th West

The Manitoba Moose roll into Quicken Loans tonight for the first time this season. Currently, on a three-game lose streak, the Moose are looking to crawl out of the bottom of the standings towards a playoff spot.

After being shut out by the Wild last weekend, the Cleveland Monsters entered the week with a vengeance beating both the Admirals and the Wild.

With the exception of Anton Forsberg, the Monsters will be firing at all cylinders tonight. Since his return, Daniel Zaar has been quite the presence notching an assist in his first game back with the squad on Tuesday. After being recalled by the Jackets on Wednesday, Oliver Bjorkstrand was returned to the Monsters today. The Monsters' defense has been playing a top notch game as of late.

The Monsters will have to keep an eye out for Jack Roslovic tonight. The Ohio native likes to put on a show when people from his home state are around.

Look for Joonas Korpisalo to start tonight and Brad Thiessen on Sunday.
