Bacashihua and Monsters Shut Out Moose

Joel Chouinard’s first professional goal came in timely fashion on Sunday afternoon, as he snapped a scoreless tie at 13:13 of the third period, propelling the Lake Erie Monsters to an eventual 2-0 win over the Manitoba Moose at Quicken Loans Arena.

On the goal, Chouinard took a brilliant pass from Ben Walter and buried a one-time shot from the top of the goal crease. Having played his first game with the Monsters on Friday, Chouinard has notched a point in all three games he’s played this season. Walter’s assist pushes his point streak to five games, as he has registered two goals and four assists during that time. Julian Talbot also assisted Chouinard, and by netting an empty-net goal with 15 seconds remaining in regulation, he also notched his sixth point in his last five outings (2G, 4A). With a goal and an assist in Toronto last night, Talbot has recorded back-to-back multi-point games.

The contest featured a rematch between Lake Erie goaltender Jason Bacashihua and his former teammate Tyler Weiman. After spending the previous three seasons with the Monsters, Weiman backstopped Manitoba to a 6-3 win over Lake Erie in his return to Quicken Loans Arena on Friday night. Bacashihua responded with his first shutout of the season, stopping all 19 of Manitoba’s shots on Sunday.

During the second period, Lake Erie held Manitoba to two shots on goal, which marks a season best for shots against in a single period.

The Monsters have won three of their last four games and hold an overall record of 5-5-0-1. Wrapping up a three-in-three weekend in which they posted a 2-1-0-0 mark, Lake Erie will be idle until Friday night when they host the Chicago Wolves for a 7:30 p.m. faceoff at Quicken Loans Arena.

Three Stars: 1. LE Chouinard (GW goal); 2. Talbot (1G, 1A); 3. Bacashihua (19 saves, shutout)
