Monstars mash Barons to win third straight
Tuesday, October 31, 2017

Winless no more. The Moody Lake Monstars used an offensive explosion to blow past the Bedford Barons by a score of 17-11 to secure their third consecutive win. Their first win came against the two-time defending champion St. John's Penguins, followed by a victory over the league-leading Nova Scotia Voyageurs, so the Monstars have been earning their wins. On this night they used two goals from Sean Couturier and a goal and an assist from each of Alex Tuch, Vlad Namestnikov, and Colin Miller. The win moves the Monstars out of the league basement and improves their record to 3-9-1. The Barons got a three-assist effort from defenceman Shea Webber in the loss.

The aforementioned Nova Scotia Voyageurs got back in the win column after having their seven game win streak snapped by the Monstars, with an impressive 18-11 win over the Halifax Atlantics. First-star Aleksander Barkov had a goal and three assists, while Steve Stamkos provided two goals and an assist and David Pastrnak chipped in with three helpers to keep the Vees in first place overall and move their record to 11-2-0 on the season. The Atlantics wasted a two-goal game from the red-hot John Tavares. The Fredericton Express picked up their seventh win of the year with a 12-10 win against the Digby Ravens. Second-star Jonathan Huberdeau filled the score sheet with a goal and two assists to pace his Express who find themselves in fourth place after this win. The loss marks the Ravens third in a row and drops them all the way down to the bottom of the standings.

Evgeny Dadonov scored once and added a pair of assists in leading his Fathom Harbour Admirals to an 8-6 win over the O'Leary Maroons. Dadonov was named third-star of the night as the Admirals continue to trail the Vees by the slimmest of margins at the top of the standings. The Louisdale Habitants extended their win streak to three thanks to a goal and an assist from Patrice Bergeron, and three apples from Ivan Provorov from the back-end, as they defeated a strong Dartmouth Swampdonkeys team by a score of 13-10. The Donks got strong games from Jaden Schwartz and Brayden Point who each had a goal and an assist. The loss is the Swampdonkey's second in a row and drops them to a very respectable 9-4-0.

Sergei Bobrovsky picked up "the dub" and added an assist for good measure as the St. John's Penguins got by the Greenwood Flying Aces 10-7. The result sees both teams share identical 5-8-0 records, with the Aces ahead in the standings due to the tiebreaker.
