    Monsters go to OT 3 straight games; win 2. 2-5-1

    The visiting Lake Erie Monsters (0-5-1-0) recorded their first power play goal and first point of the 2011-12 season while falling 4-3 in overtime to the Syracuse Crunch (3-0-1-0). Friday’s game was the first of a three-in-three this weekend and the third in a five-game road trip for the Monsters.
    Syracuse opened the scoring just 21 seconds into the game when Kyle Palmieri took a pass at the side of the goal and one-timed it in to give the Crunch a early 1-0 lead. Nick Bonino and Patrick Maroon assisted.

    Less than four minutes later, the Monsters evened the score when David Liffiton fired a slap shot from the center of the Syracuse blue line that beat goalie Jeff Deslauriers. Ben Wilson and Eric Hunter assisted on the goal. The helpers were their first professional points, while the goal was Liffiton’s first of the season.

    At 7:33 of the first period, Adrian Foster – playing his first game with Lake Erie - gave the Monsters a 2-1 lead when he found a loose puck at the side of the net and quickly pushed it over the line for his first of the season. David van der Gulik and Tyson Barrie assisted on the goal. The Monsters had the man advantage on the play, the team’s first power play marker of the season. Lake Erie was 0-19 on the power play going into Friday’s contest.

    After a second period that yielded no scoring, Palmieri tied the game at 7:44 of the third period. Palmieri took a long pass from Mathieu Carle and streaked in on a breakaway, deking Monsters goalie Trevor Cann to tie the game at 2-2. Maroon was also credited with a helper, his second of the night.

    Hugh Jessiman scored his first of the season and first as a Monster at 13:33 of the third period when he grabbed a loose puck off to the side of the Syracuse net and quickly turned it over the goal line to give the Monsters a 3-2 lead. Justin Mercier and Jake Newton assisted on the goal; for Newton, the assist was his first point as a Monster.

    Thirty-three seconds later, Maroon scored when he nabbed a bouncing puck in front of the net in what would prove to be the game-tying goal that forced overtime. Bonino and former Monster Kyle Cumiskey assisted.

    In overtime, after Liffiton was assessed a hooking minor, Maroon scored on a rebound at 1:04 to give Syracuse the second point and the win.

    Cann took the loss in net for Lake Erie; he stopped 30 of 34 shots and his record moved to 0-4-1. Deslauriers earns the win to improve to 3-0-0; he stopped 30 of 33 shots.

    The Monsters and Crunch will do battle again in Syracuse on Saturday night with the puck dropping at 7:30 p.m.

    For the third straight night, the Lake Erie Monsters game went to overtime and for the second straight night, a rookie defenseman delivered the team a win. Tyson Barrie scored his second goal of the night and the season at 1:21 of overtime to lead the Monsters to a 5-4 win over the Marlies in Toronto on Sunday.
    That followed Saturday’s overtime win in Syracuse, when fellow first-year blueliner Stefan Elliott recorded the gamewinner. The Monsters also lost in overtime to Syracuse the previous night.

    Playing their third game in three nights on Sunday, the Monsters picked up five of a possible six points over the weekend and now stand at 2-5-1-0 on the season. Sunday’s game capped off a five-game road trip for Lake Erie.

    Toronto got on the board first when Mike Zigomanis scored at 6:43, giving the Marlies the early 1-0 advantage.

    David van der Gulik evened the score eight minutes later, notching his second goal of the season at 15:05 of the first period. Mike Brennan assisted.

    A minute-and-a-half later, David Liffiton put the Monsters up 2-1 when he scored on the power play at 16:33. Hugh Jessiman and Cameron Gaunce were credited with the assists.

    The first period ended with the Monsters leading 2-1.

    Barrie scored his first as a professional 3:49 into the second. van der Gulik and Adrian Foster assisted on the power play marker, giving the Monsters a 3-1 lead they would take into the second intermission.

    The Marlies came out shooting to start the third period. Joe Colborne brought the Marlies within one with his goal just 22 seconds into the last frame.

    Joey Crabb tied the game at 3-3 with his power play goal at 11:01 and then put the Marlies ahead, 4-3, at 16:30 with his second goal of the game.

    Seven seconds later, Evan Brophey scored his first of the season, tying it back up at 4-4. Luke Walker had the helper, sending the game to overtime.

    With the Monsters on the man advantage in extra time, Barrie notched his second of the night, giving the Monsters the 5-4 win. Elliott assisted on the gamewinner.

    Trevor Cann recorded 24 saves on 28 shots in the Lake Erie win. Across the ice, Marlies netminder Jussi Rynnas had 27 saves on 32 shots.

    The Monsters were 3-for-6 on the power play, their best showing on the man advantage so far this season.

    Next up, Lake Erie will return home on Wednesday to host the Syracuse Crunch at 7:00 p.m.

    Monsters rookie Stefan Elliott’s first goal as a professional came at the most opportune time: in the second straight night of overtime hockey in Syracuse.

    His goal at 3:24 of overtime on Saturday secured the first win of the season for the Lake Erie Monsters (1-5-1), a 3-2 victory over the Crunch (3-0-2). In back-to-back games in Syracuse, the Monsters earned three of a possible four points (4-3 OTL on Friday).
    Playing in just his second game with the team, Adrian Foster put the Monsters on the board with less than five minutes remaining in the first period when he potted a backhander from in front of the Syracuse net. The play was made possible by a pass off the stick of David van der Gulik. Greg Mauldin also assisted on Foster’s second goal in as many nights, giving the Monsters a 1-0 lead.

    The second period yielded a single goal just as the first did, which came in the final minute of the middle frame. Kyle Palmieri picked up a rebound and sent the puck behind Monsters goalie Trevor Cann for his eighth of the season, tying the game at 1-1.

    Syracuse gained their first lead of the hockey game at 10:39 of the third period when Nick Schaus sent a point shot through traffic that beat Cann; the 2-1 lead was the only Crunch lead of the night. The goal was scored on the power play as Lake Erie’s Hugh Jessiman was serving a minor for boarding.

    With 2:22 remaining, Lake Erie tied the game at 2-2 when Cameron Gaunce scored on a similar play to the Schaus goal. Gaunce fired a wrist shot through a screen in front of Crunch goalie Iiro Tarkki to tie the game. Elliott and Luke Walker assisted on Gaunce’s first of the season.

    In overtime, Elliott scored on a shot from the high slot to notch Lake Erie’s first win of the season. Elliott’s first professional goal was assisted by Eric Hunter and Gaunce.

    Trevor Cann improves to 1-4-1 in net for Lake Erie; he stopped 21 of 23 shots. Tarkki’s record moves to 0-0-2, as he turned away 31 of 34 shots.

    The Monsters will finish their current five-game road trip and second straight weekend of three-in-threes in Toronto on Sunday; the puck drops at 5:00 p.m.
