Cleveland Monsters, 20-29-4-3, 47 points, .420 win%, 7th Central, 14th West


San Jose Barracuda, 22-21-8-1, 53 points, .510 win%, 8th Pacific, 11th West

The Cleveland Monsters continue their road trip with a two game back-to-back series against the San Jose Barracuda. This will also be the last time the two meet this season.

The Monsters currently have 3 of 4 points in the series with a record of 1-0-1-0.

Both teams enter Friday’s game looking for their third win in a row.

The Barracuda have a slightly worse power play unit and a slightly better penalty kill unit. As of late, the Monsters’ special teams have been steamrolling everything in their path.

The Monsters need to play against the Barracuda like they did against the Tucson Roadrunners, clean and tight.

Sergei Bobrovsky is back up Joonas Korpisalo for the Columbus Blue Jackets tonight. Which means Jeff Zatkoff will be back in California with the Monsters.
