The Manchester Monarchs and Worcester Sharks will meet Wednesday night at the DCU Center for Game 5 of their Atlantic Division Final series.

The winner takes a 3-2 lead in the series and is one step closer to the conference finals, where the Hershey Bears wait.

The split the first four games, with each team winning one of the other's home ice. Winning in Worcester was something the Monarchs had not done during the regular season, but they'll have to do it one more time if they're going to advance.

"Now it’s a best-of-three series, and getting that one in their place is going to be big, so we have to prepare for that," Gabe Gauthier said.

Game 5 will start at 7:05 p.m. on Wednesday, and Game 6 will be at 7:30 p.m on Friday in Manchester. If it's needed, Game 7 would be back in Worcester on Saturday.
