The Manchester Monarchs' scoring woes continued for a second straight day.

The Monarchs, beaten 4-1 on Saturday, were held scoreless until Robbie Czarnik's goal with 1:08 remaining and lost, 5-1, to the host Springfield Falcons Sunday afternoon in AHL play.

The Falcons scored one in the first and two in each of the second and third periods to build a 5-0 lead. Cam Atkinson, Alexandre Giroux and Wade MacLeod all had a goal and an assist for Springfield (23-23-4) while Andrew Joudrey and Matt Calvert had single tallies.

Czarnik broke the shutout bid by Paul Dainton (24 saves) when he scored a power-play goal. David Kolomatis and Linden Vey were credited with assists on the goal for the Monarchs (28-23-2).

Jeff Zatkoff played all 60 minutes in the Manchester goal, making 20 saves on 25 shots. Manchester was 1-for-6 on the power play while Springfield was 0-for-4.

The loss is the second straight for the Monarchs, who lost to the Connecticut Whale on Saturday night.

Manchester travels to Glens Falls, N.Y. for a 7 p.m. game against Adirondack on Friday night before returning home for a Saturday evening game against Hershey at the Verizon.
