Monarchs fall in OT
In six of their seven games to date, the Monarchs have gone to overtime or a shootout. Sunday followed that trend as Manchester’s Nick Deslauriers scored with 4:28 remaining in regulation to force overtime before Wilkes-Barre Scranton’s Brendan Mikkelson scored 22 seconds into the extra session for a 4-3 Penguins victory before 3,186 fans at Verizon Wireless Arena.
Sunday, Manchester played catch-up all afternoon.
Brian Gibbons’ power-play goal at 8:08 of the first period gave the Penguins a 1-0 lead. But Sean Backman responded for the home team at 18:29 of the first period.
Gibbons scored again at 5:50 of the third before Deslauriers answered.
Manchester plays next on Wednesday night at Worcester.
