Scoresheet

The Lake Erie Monsters fell 4-0 to the Charlotte Checkers Friday night before a crowd of 11,122 fans at Quicken Loans Arena. Rookie goaltender Kieran Millan played in and started his first-ever AHL game for the Monsters, who saw their five-game home win streak come to a close.

Although Lake Erie outshot Charlotte 11-7 in the first period, neither team was able to score in the opening frame.

Riley Nash scored for the Checkers during a delayed penalty situation- his fifth goal of the season- at 10:14 of the second period with a slapshot from the top of the right circle, giving Charlotte a 1-0 lead.

In the third period, former Ohio State standout Zac Dalpe scored twice for the Checkers- at 6:45 and 9:52 (power play)- to give Charlotte a 3-0 lead heading into the final half of the final frame.
