Tonight, the Cleveland Monsters and the Rockford IceHogs meet for the third time this season. It’s going to be another tough night for the Monsters. A win will not come easy.  The Rockford IceHogs have been on fire since dropping their first two games of the season to the Cleveland Monsters. The IceHogs will come out with a blazing fires in their bellies because they do not want to drop three of the four games in the series to their foe. To combat the IceHogs desire to win, the Monsters must keep their energy level up all night long. As well as, play a skilled game of hockey. One false move and the IceHogs will smother them. Especially the Sikura brothers, Tyler and Dylan.

Three Quick Keys for Tonight’s Game

  1. Keep an eye on the Sikura brothers, Tyler and Dylan. They are deadly when underestimated.
  2. Don’t cross-check anyone. Especially if you go by the name Doyle Somerby. The officials appear to be cracking down on cross-checking this year and the last thing the Monsters need is to be down a man against the IceHogs.
  3. Grind out every play until the whistle blows. The only way to take down the IceHogs will be to outlast them on every play.
