Monarchs fall in Sunday shootout

Dan DaSilva and Sebastian Stalberg each tallied in the shootout session to lead the Worcester Sharks to a 3-2 American Hockey League decision against the Manchester Monarchs Sunday before 2,711 fans at the DCU Center in Worcester, Mass.

The Sharks battled back from a 2-0 deficit with two third-period goals.

“This afternoon was a lackluster performance,” said Manchester head coach Mark Morris. “There were some good things, but we never got on track. We’re a skating team, that’s when we play our best hockey. Unfortunately, we didn’t have our legs and we squandered a 2-0 lead heading into the third. When the legs get heavy, the next thing to shut down is the brain. This shootout loss stings, but looking at the big picture, we did get five-of-six points on the weekend.”

Worcester defenseman Matt Tennyson scored a power-play goal at the 4:11 mark of the period and center Rylan Schwartz tallied the equalizer a little more than two minutes later (6:54) in the frame.

Manchester (13-3-1-3, 30 points), currently leading the pack in the Eastern Conference, scored a late first-period goal. Scott Sabourin notched his sixth season goal with 27 seconds left in the period. Andy Andreoff and Jeff Schultz each had an assist on the score.

Manchester’s second goal came off the stick of Maxim Kitsyn at the 12:41 mark of the middle period. Hunter Bishop and Andrew Bodnarchuk each had an assist on the goal.

Goalie Jean-Francois Berube turned back 29 shots for Manchester, which was 0-for-3 on the power play.

On Saturday the Monarchs defeated Providence, 3-2 in Manchester. Sabourin’s second goal of the game, a one-timer from the slot, was the game winner.
