USE THE DEPTH

As currently constituted, the Monarchs are without five of their Top-10 scorers in Joel Lowry, Matt Leitner, Sam Kurker, Tony Cameranesi and Kevin Morris, who have accounted for 122 points. Despite being without that firepower, the remaining Top-10 in scoring, Jordan LaVallee-Smotherman, Zac Lynch, Colton Saucerman, Michael Doherty and Matt Schmalz have combined for 126 points. In comparison, Worcester’s Top-10 have combined for 160 points.

KILLING IT

Manchester’s penalty-killing unit has been nails at SNHU Arena this season, and leads the league with a 90.7% success rate (49-for-54) when home. The PK should remain hot tonight, as Worcester enters with the 26th-ranked road power play in the league, converting on only 9.5% (6-for-63) of their chances away from the DCU Center.

HE’S NOT GOING TO PASS…

Worcester forward, Woody Hudson, has been a bit of a statistical anomaly this season on his way to making his first All-Star appearance. In 30 games, Hudson has scored 12 goals, but has not registered an assist. The Railers rookie forward is also converting on 22.2% of his shots, good for second among active first-year skaters.
