The Manchester Monarchs held an optional practice on Thursday at the Utica Memorial Auditorium. Though J-F Berube did not take the ice after leaving the game due to injury in the first period of Game 3, Patrik Bartosak did, along with back-up goaltenders Jeff Lerg and Steve Mastalerz. Jeff Schultz, who was injured in the first period of Game 1, skated for the second consecutive day, though Brian O’Neill, who was injured early in Game 3, did not.
