The Cleveland Monsters and Texas Stars are set to play two of their four-game season series this weekend.
The Monsters must keep the lead. This season the Stars have not won a game when trailing after any period. Once the Monsters get the momentum they must keep it going.
Keep an eye on Travis Morin. He’s a dangerous man to have open around the net. Once Morin spots a scoring chance he will do everything in his power to make it happen.
Both teams are less than stellar on the power play. If the Monsters can stay strong on the penalty kill, they can easily take down the Stars.
