Juraj Mikus scored, and so did some mortals, as the Manchester Monarchs beat Hartford 7-1 tonight. Actually, it’s a tribute to Manchester, to be playing this well given all the players losses of late. Kevin Westgarth had two goals, and Geoff Walker, Viatcheslav Voynov, Marc-Andre Cliche and Alec Martinez each had one. Gabe Gauthier had three assists and Voynov, Oscar Moller and Joe Piskula each had two.
Jonathan Bernier stopped 19 of 20 shots. Bernier has allowed two or fewer goals in eight of his last nine starts.
Manchester hosts Worcester on Saturday.
