Jan 9, 2022

The Cleveland Monsters fell to the Chicago Wolves 4-3 on Sunday night at Allstate Arena. With the loss, the Monsters are now 11-9-4-3 and are currently in fourth place in the AHL’s North Division standings.

 

Cole Fonstad wasted no time putting the Monsters in front with a deflection off assists from Trey Fix-Wolansky and Tyler Sikura just 35 seconds into the game. Chicago was quick to respond with a power play goal from Jack Drury at 12:48, followed shortly after by an even strength tally from Artyom Serikov at 15:25 that gave the Wolves a 2-1 lead after the opening period. The Monsters controlled the middle frame thanks to Jake Gaudet’s first professional goal at 2:33 with helpers from Billy Sweezey and Tim Berni, followed by a Josh Dunne marker at 9:44 with assists to Brendan Gaunce and Kevin Stenlund, which gave Cleveland a 3-2 advantage entering the final period. The Wolves used a goal from Andrew Poturalski to tie things up again 24 seconds into period three, before Stefan Noesen put Chicago up for good with a goal at 9:53 on the power play, giving Chicago a 4-3 victory.

 

Cleveland’s Jet Greaves made 30 stops in defeat while Chicago’s Daniel Mannella made 25 saves in the victory.
