Monarchs edge past Worcester

Jordan Weal snapped a tie game in the third period, and Tyler Toffoli notched his team-leading 19th goal as the Monarchs defeated the Worcester Sharks, 3-1, at the DCU Center in Worcester, Mass., on Friday night.

Toffoli, named to the American Hockey League All-Star Game earlier in the week, beat Sharks goalie Harri Sateri at 18:48 of the third period.

Worcester forward Jon Matsumoto scored the only goal of the first period, notching his 12th goal of the season. The Sharks held a 1-0 lead until the eighth minute of the second period. Monarchs centerman Linden Vey, with assists from Brandon Kozun and Tanner Pearson, beat Sateri. Vey had a goal and an assist for the Monarchs (18-17-2-2), who host Providence tonight at 7 at Verizon Wireless Arena. The Monarchs also host Portland on Sunday at 3 p.m.

Goalie Martin Jones returned for the Monarchs, saving 28 of 29 shots. Sateri saved 16 of 19 shots for the Sharks, who dropped to 19-16-1-3. In a physical battle, the division foes began swapping punches in the opening seconds of the game. Andy Andreoff, who earned a three-game suspension earlier this month for a hit to the head of Worcester's Curt Gogol, dropped the gloves with Jimmy Bonneau. Justin Johnson also had a fight with Bonneau. Neither team scored on the power play in the contest.
