Monarchs fall; Jones returns to Manchester
The teams scored five goals in a wild first period, with Manchester going into intermission behind, 3-2.
But Manchester came right back and scored 24 seconds later. Defenseman Andrew Campbell halved Hershey’s lead with a goal at 14:06 ,and Nick Shore tied it up less than two minutes later with a power play goal at 16:04.
Manchester started the second period poorly as the Monarchs conceded a shorthanded goal to Nicolas Deschamps at 1:01 to make the score 4-2. Brandon Segal added a goal at 4:09, which chased Monarchs goalie Jean-Francois Berube from the game. Casey Wellman scored at 19:21 of the second, on a power play, to give Hershey a 6-2 lead.
Berube took the loss, allowing five goals in 24:09. Mathias Niederberger relieved and allowed one goal in 35:51.
Berube, who has spent the past two months manning the Monarchs net, is likely to return to his backup role after the Los Angeles Kings assigned goalie Martin Jones to Manchester on Sunday.
There could be more moves this week. The Los Angeles Times reported Sunday that left wing Tanner Pearson will be recalled to the Kings this week in the wake of L.A’.s trade Saturday of forward Daniel Carcillo to the Rangers.
