The Fresno Monsters are in Anaheim to take on the Ontario Avalanche today at 4:05 p.m. PT at The Rinks. Tune in on Black Dog Hockey and on Twitter for the action.
LAST TIME OUT Fresno is coming off a clean sweep in Valencia going into today's game. Last night the Monsters defeated the Flyers 6-1 with all goals coming from newcomers to Fresno.
Dumoulin got the hat trick scoring back to back goals in the second period only a minute apart with an assist from Ty Wright both times before scoring the game winning goal in the third.
Also getting their first goals of the season with Fresno was Zackary Lavoie, Nick Leech, and Triston Mirasty.

KEYS TO THE GAME Wear Down Ontario's Offense: The Avalanche have a solid offensive core that doesn't miss many high-quality chances during the course of a game. The Monsters need to keep the pucks in the opposing zone as much as possible and create a solid support for their goalie.
Special Teams Success: Fresno has begun clicking on the power play and the penalty kill these past few games. They need to keep this up to maintain that success they've recently begun to see.
