Homestand Starts with Admirals

MATCHUP
An eight-game homestand begins tonight for the Lake Erie Monsters as they welcome in the Milwaukee Admirals for the second meeting of the season between the two clubs, and first on Quicken Loans Arena ice. The puck drops at 7:00 PM. The Monsters hold a four-point lead over Milwaukee in the Western Conference standings, but Milwaukee has three games in-hand. The Monsters are 0-4-0-4 over their last eight games, while Milwaukee has won six of its last 10 games. The Monsters topped the Admirals 2-1 in the only other meeting this season between the teams; a November 2 game in Milwaukee in which Calvin Pickard stopped 42 shots and Luke Walker netted the game-winning goal.

LAST TIME OUT
The Monsters fell in a shootout 2-1 on Sunday despite 40 saves from Pickard and a goal from Paul Carey, giving him a goal in four straight games. The Monsters have four shootout losses over their last eight games. Brad Malone and Geoff Walker picked up assists for the Monsters.

WHO TO WATCH: MONSTERS
Carey continues to be providing a consistent offensive spark for the Monsters, as his current four-game goal streak is one off the Monsters season-best five-game goal streak, which was accomplished by David van der Gulik between 12/15/12 and 12/26/12. Carey has 10 goals over his last 17 contests.

WHO TO WATCH: ADMIRALS
Forward Taylor Beck has a goal in each of his last three games played, and also has four goals and 11 points over his last nine games. Beck leads Milwaukee with 37 points in 42 games, and was the Nashville Predators’ third round draft choice (70th overall) in 2009.

TUNE IN
All of Thursday’s action, live from Downtown Cleveland, can be heard live on ESPN 850 WKNR and seen live on FOX Sports Ohio beginning at 7:00 PM. Doug Plagens will be on the play-by-play alongside color analyst Jock Callander, with rinkside reports provided by Kenny Roda.
