Monarchs fall to Hartford in shootout
The Monarchs (3-0-2) play their first home game of the season Saturday night when the Providence Bruins visit Verizon Wireless Arena for a 7 p.m. game.
Hartford (4-0-1) scored two quick goals in the third period to erase a 3-1 Manchester lead.
Linden Vey had a chance to win the game in overtime for Manchester when he was awarded a penalty shot, but Hartford goalie Cam Talbot made the save.
Tanner Pearson put Manchester on top 2-1 early in the second period. Pearson broke in alone on Talbot and beat the Wolfpack goalie with a forehand shot.
The Monarchs announced on Friday that veteran defenseman Andrew Campbell has been named team captain and defenseman Andrew Bodnarchuk and Vey were named alternate captains. Campbell is in his sixth season with the team.
