Legein propels Monarchs past Sharks

WORCESTER, Mass. — Stefan Legein scored the first of his two goals on a power play at 8:54 in the first period and the Manchester Monarchs defeated the Worcester Sharks 3-1 on Friday night.

Legein added a short-handed insurance goal at 7:07 in the third.

Marc-Andre Cliche assisted on both, while Patrick Mullen also assisted on the first.

Right-winger Brandon Kozun scored in the first at 0:53 on assists from Linden Vey and Robert Czamik.

Manchester improved to 28-21-0 and sits in second place in the Atlantic Division, eight points behind the first-place St. John's IceCaps. Worcester fell to 21-15-4.

Monarchs goalie Jeff Zatkoff earned another win in net, stopping 17 of the 18 shots he faced. Sharks netminder Harri Sateri made 25 saves.

Zatkoff also stopped a Tim Kennedy penalty shot in the first period.

There were a total of 60 penalty minutes in the game, highlighted by fights between Manchester's Justin Johnson and Jimmy Bonneau, the Monarchs' Richard Clune and Curt Gogol, and Manchester's Jordan Hill and Matt Pelech.

Slava Voynov, assigned to Manchester from NHL parent-club Los Angeles earlier Friday, took one shot in the contest. Voynov had four goals in 26 games with the Kings this season.

Forwards Dwight King and Jordan Nolan were sent to the Kings to shore up the L.A. offense following Jaret Stoll's lower body injury suffered in a game against the Florida Panthers on Thursday. Stoll has been placed on injured reserve.

Manchester returns to Verizon Wireless Arena tonight to play the Connecticut Whale at 7 p.m. in the second annual “Pink in the Rink” night. The Monarchs Care Foundation and Catholic Medical Center are teaming up to raise breast cancer awareness.
