Monarchs lose in shooutout

MANCHESTER, N.H. — Martin Jones stopped 25 of 27 shots but then took his second shootout loss this season.

Jones stopped just one of three shots during the shootout as Manchester lost 3-2 to the Springfield Falcons.

“You’re not going to get many better chances than the ones we had,” Monarchs coach Mark Morris said. “The fact of the matter is that you’ve got to score and their goalie played very well. I think our goalie played super in the first and their goalie was there to shut us down at the tail end.”

Manchester (12-11-2-2) is fourth in the Atlantic Division with 28 points. Springfield (15-5-2-3) leads the Northeast Division with 35 points.

Springfield goalie Curt McElhinney (14-3-2) saved 32 out of 34 shots regulation and 4-of-4 shootout attempts.

Jones set a franchise record with his seventh consecutive loss. The game marked his 100th appearance as a Monarchs netminder.

The Monarchs play the Connecticut Whale at the Verizon Wireless Arena on Friday at 7 p.m.
