Monarchs fall to Springfield
Is there any Kings-affiliated goalie who hasn’t had a tough week? Jonathan Bernier stopped 29 of 32 shots and took his first loss of the season Friday as the Manchester Monarchs fell to the Springfield Falcons, 4-1. Springfield scored an empty-net goal with 1:22 to play. Oscar Moller scored the goal for the Monarchs, his third goal in five games this season. Scott Parse and Viatcheslav Voynov had assists. Rich Clune did not play. He is still considered day to day because of his pulled groin. Clune didn’t seriously reinjure the groin when he played last week, but he felt a little twinge. Clune had been cleared in all previous on- and off-ice workouts.
