Kenndal McArdle scored a short handed goal two minutes into the second period and gave a glimpse of hope that maybe the losing streak would end. Unfortunately the Amerks couldn’t hold on as the Monsters scored with five minutes left in regulation and then won the game in overtime.
The Monsters outshot the Amerks by a tally of 14-3 in the first period and then 19-5 in the third period. WTF?? How do only three shots get through at a goalie in 20 minutes? That does not even seem possible, leave it to the Amerks. At least they kept it close out shooting Lake Erie 11-7 in the second period.
There’s always Friday night in Syracuse. Or maybe Saturday in Hershey? Doubtful.. but as a fan I’ll always be hopeful.
