Monarchs push Sharks to the brink

Bud Holloway tied an AHL record with his sixth game-winning goal of the playoffs and the Manchester Monarchs took control of the Atlantic Division Final series against the Worcester Sharks with a 1-0 win on Wednesday.

Holloway scored his sixth goal of the postseason - all have been game-winners - and goalie Jonathan Bernier recorded his second shutout of the Calder Cup playoffs by making 30 saves.

Manchester leads the series 3-2 with Game 6 scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Verizon Wireless Arena.

"Every sport has specialty players,: Manchester coach Mark Morris said of Holloway. "He is hitting his stride right now and he’s really grown this season.

"For the most part, we kept (Worcester) to the outside and the quality chances they had, Bernier was stellar. We played hard as a team. It should be a dandy game next time the puck drops."

For the fourth time in the five games against Worcester, Manchester scored first. Holloway one-timed a pass from Gabe Gauthier past Sharks goalie Alex Stalock at 13:11 of the first period.

Stalock finished with 24 saves for the Sharks.

Holloway's six game-winners tied the record set by Darren Haydar, who accomplished the feat in 2006 with the Milwaukee Admirals.
