Weekend Rewind

The Lake Erie Monsters concluded their first three-in-three weekend of the season on Sunday. Including a split with the Manitoba Moose and a win in Toronto over the Marlies, Lake Erie posted an impressive 2-1-0-0 mark this weekend.

On Friday, the Monsters hosted Manitoba for their first game of the season against a North Division opponent. After falling 6-3 against the Moose, the Monsters rebounded with a 4-1 win in Toronto on Saturday afternoon, and a 2-0 win in Sunday’s rematch with Manitoba.

With a pair of wins, the weekend was highlighted with several notables by Lake Erie players:
 
Between the Pipes: Goaltender Jason Bacashihua started all three games for Lake Erie, improving his overall record to 3-3-1 on the season. During Saturday’s win in Toronto, Bacashihua stopped 17 of the 18 shots he faced.

In Sunday’s rematch against former teammate, Tyler Weiman, Bacashihua recorded his first shutout of the season by denying all 19 of Manitoba’s shots. Bacashihua owns a GAA of 2.42, a save percentage of .899 and he has not allowed a goal in Lake Erie’s last 97:21 of play.

Leading the Way: Julian Talbot leads the Monsters in assists (5), points (9) and plus/minus rating (+7). Talbot registered back-to-back multi-point games over the weekend, as he tallied a goal and an assist on both Saturday and Sunday.

Center Greg Mauldin has recorded eight points (4G, 4A) and a plus-5 rating through 11 games this season. Five of his points (3G, 2A) occurred in consecutive games (Oct. 20-Oct. 30).

Center Ben Walter is currently running a five-game point streak of his own, as he has recorded two goals and four assists since October 22nd. This season, Walter has registered seven points (2G, 5A) in 11 games.

Right wing Matt Ford has also notched seven points (4G, 3A), while his 51 shots on goal lead the team.

Young Gun: Rookie defenseman Joel Chouinard appeared in his first three games as a Monster this weekend. In Friday night’s contest against Manitoba, he recorded his first assist as a professional.

During Saturday’s 4-1 victory in Toronto, Chouinard assisted Justin Mercier’s game-tying goal. In Sunday’s rematch against Manitoba, he scored his first professional goal, the game-winning tally of an eventual 2-0 win over the Moose.

The Quebec native has spent the last three seasons with the Victoriaville Tigers in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Next Up: On Friday, November 5th, the Monsters will host the Chicago Wolves for a 7:30 p.m. faceoff.

On Sunday, November 7th, Lake Erie will welcome the Grand Rapids Griffins to Quicken Loans Arena. The two North Division teams will meet for a total of eight games this season, three of which will take place in November.
