Monarchs rally to top Bears, 5-4

The streak is over.

Following a seven-game winless streak that saw the Manchester Monarchs still looking for their first win in 2012, the team used two third period goals to win 5-4 over the Hershey Bears at the Giant Center on Saturday night.

Monarchs captain Marc-Andre Cliche netted the game-winner at 17:56 after Manchester allowed the Bears to tie it up on a Jacob Micflikier power play goal three minutes before.

Linden Vey, Cam Paddock, Justin Azevedo, and Jordan Nolan also scored, while Paddock and Nolan each picked up an assist as well. Jake Muzzin also had two points on a pair of assists.

Martin Jones was in net for the full 60 minutes, stopping 31 of the 35 shots Hershey (24-10-4) fired at him.

The win for the Monarchs came at a good time, as they now sit at 22-19-0 and have their sights set on making a return to the top of the Atlantic Division.

Manchester was held scoreless on the power play yet again, while Hershey connected on one of its three chances.

Mickflikier had two goals for Hershey, while Chris Bourque had three assists.

Dany Sabourin made 33 saves for the Bears.

The two teams play again at 5 p.m. in Hershey.
