The Monsters tied the game after Sikura tipped in a power-play goal at 7:41 off feeds from Helewka and Gavin Bayreuther. Kole Sherwood notched Cleveland’s third unanswered marker at 12:36 with helpers from Ole Bjorgvik-Holm and Luke Moncada bringing the score to 3-2 heading into the final period. Sherwood continued the offensive hot streak into the third period with his second goal at 4:44 assisted by Adam Clendening and Josh Dunne securing the Monsters 4-2 win.
