In that outburst, former Monster Darren Haydar recorded a natural hat trick, including the overtime winner with less than a second left in the extra session.

The Monsters traveled to Allstate Arena on November 21st and fell by a 5-2 count. In that game, it was Andre Deveaux who recorded a hat trick for Chicago, including the eventual game winner at 8:51 of the second period. Mark Olver scored both Lake Erie goals, including a power play tally at 2:23 of the second period.

On November 23rd, the Wolves hosted Lake Erie for a rematch at Allstate Arena, taking a 6-3 win for their third consecutive victory over the Monsters. In that game, the Monsters surrendered a season high for shots in a game (46) and in a period (22).

Matt Ford scored twice for the Monsters, while defenseman Ray Macias assisted on both.
