Monsters Make History in 5-0 Shutout Over Icehogs

Oct 26, 2019

The AHL’s Cleveland Monsters blanked the Rockford IceHogs 5-0 Saturday afternoon at Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse. With the win, the Monsters are now 5-3-0-1 and are currently in third place in the AHL’s North Division standings with 11 points.

 

Cleveland posted five goals throughout the game starting with Ryan Collins and Ryan MacInnis each notching tallies in the first period. Andrew Peeke scored a power-play goal to start the middle frame followed by Eric Robinson’s even-strength tally just over a minute later. Nathan Gerbe provided a man-advantage finish for Cleveland’s fifth goal of the night and 12th unanswered goal of the weekend. With the goal, the Monsters set a new franchise record for the most consecutive unanswered goals. Saturday also marked the first time in franchise history the Monsters have scored five or more goals in three consecutive games. Cleveland’s backstop Veini Vehvilainen made 29 saves in the shutout while Rockford’s Matt Tomkins stopped 38 shots in the loss.
