Cleveland Monsters, 12-20-3-3, 30 points, .395 win%, 7th Central, 15th West


Chicago Wolves, 20-15-5-2, 47 points, .560 win%, 5th Central, 10th West

The Cleveland Monsters hit the road this afternoon to play against the Chicago Wolves at 4pm.

After a less than stellar performance on Friday, the Monsters are back in last place in the league on the power play with 12.6%. Chicago isn’t far ahead of them having success on the power play only 14.4% of the time. The biggest difference comes on the penalty kill where the Monsters are 25th and the Wolves are 13th.

Playing a clean and disciplined game will help the Monsters get through this game unscathed.

The lines will be back to some sort of normalcy now that Markus Hannikainen and Dean Kukan are back with the Jackets.

Defender, Jason Garrison was assigned by the Vegas Golden Knights to the Wolves on Saturday.  This means the Wolves defense will be pretty solid and tough to get through. Tonight, the Monsters will need to be quick, stealthy, and aggressive.
