After their game against San Antonio, the Monsters remain on the road, traveling to Norfolk, Virginia, on Friday to play the Admirals for the second and final time this season. The game is Lake Erie’s first-ever in the Norfolk Scope arena. In the first contest against the Admirals, Lake Erie lost, 4-2, on October 17th at Quicken Loans Arena. Monsters forward Phil Dupuis scored his first goal of the season in the game.

Lake Erie wraps up the road trip on Saturday at the Wachovia Spectrum to play the Philadelphia Phantoms for the second and final time this season. In their first game against the Phantoms this year, Lake Erie shutout Philadelphia, 3-0 at The Q on Sunday, January 11th.

Galiardi, Darcy Campbell and captain Nathan Smith found the back of the net. In the game, Smith recorded his second multi-point game of the season with a goal and assist.

After completing the road trip, the Monsters will enjoy a five-day break for the 2009 AHL All-Star Classic, held in Worcester, Massachusetts on Monday, January 26th. The team will be represented at the game by defenseman Kyle Cumiskey, who will play on the Canadian All-Star Team.
