The Fresno Monsters pulled away from the Flyers after opening the first period with a pair of goals and adding two more in the second period to gain a 4-0 lead. Mikhail Gavrilenko and Ty Woodard each scored twice to facilitate the win.


Nikhil Pool got the flyers on the board scoring at 12:41 of the second period making it 4-1. However, the Monster’s Antoine Dumoulin re-established the three-goal margin late in the frame.


Valencia caught Fresno sleeping just after Dumoulin’s goal, and connected on three straight to make it 5-4. Nikita Garin collected two of the three goals and Cole Sykes also put one home.

Gavrilenko put the game away with 36 seconds remaining in the final frame, and gave Fresno its first win of the weekend.
