Eastern Conference Semifinal Game 2: Manchester Monarchs (MCH leads 1-0)
May 7, 2015Posted by on
Eastern Conference Semifinal Game 2 — Manchester Monarchs
AHL Game: I2
Who: Manchester Monarchs
Where: Verizon Wireless Arena
When: 7:00 p.m.
Series: MCH leads 1-0 (best of seven)
Last Game: The Penguins lost 4-3 in triple overtime last night. Zach O’Brien scored the game winning goal at 4:13 of the third overtime. Matt Murray made 52 saves on 56 shots.
What to Watch For: Two things. First, conditioning. You have to think that last nights triple overtime thriller took a lot out of both teams, moreso maybe Manchester because they have played more games than the Penguins in the past week. Second, adjustments. Scott Wilson did not finish the game Wednesday, does that mean that Oskar Sundqvist makes his North American pro debut? Does anyone else shuffle into the lineup and if so what impact do they make?
