Monsters Faceoff Against Amerks

MATCHUP
Owners of a three-game winning streak, the Lake Erie Monsters (15-13-1-1) will visit the Rochester Americans (13-11-2-1) for the second meeting between the two teams this season. In the last meeting between the teams, Rochester earned a 7-6 comeback win over the Monsters at The Q on 12/13. The Monsters are coming off a 5-2 home win over Houston on Saturday. Rochester, who is 1-2-0-1 over their last four games, fell in Binghamton by a 5-1 score.

LAST TIME OUT
The Monsters topped Houston 5-2 on Saturday at home, with five different players scoring. Jamie MacQueen's first AHL goal stood as the game-winner, while Mike Sgarbossa and Andrew Agozzino scored to extend their point streaks to five games. Paul Carey and David van der Gulik tallied empty-net goals and chipped in assists, while Tyson Barrie added a pair of assists to his team-leading total; he now has 18. The Monsters are 3-0-0-0 against Houston and 9-4-0-0 against the South Division.

WHO TO WATCH: MONSTERS
van der Gulik's four-game goal streak is a season-best for a Monsters player; he has eight points over his last four games in all. The five-game point streaks of Agozzino and Sgarbossa tie Agozzino's previous season-best.

WHO TO WATCH: ROCHESTER
Luke Adam had a goal and an assist, and was one of seven Rochester players to tally two points the last time the Americans played the Monsters. The 2008 second round draft choice of the Buffalo Sabres is on a seven-game point streak, and has five goals and three assists over those seven games.
