Ramage Scores In Overtime, As The Monsters Defeat Grand Rapids 3-2

CLEVELAND, Ohio- The Cleveland Monsters were back in action on Tuesday against the Grand Rapids Griffins. A win would move the Monsters into 6th place in the Central Division standings.

The Griffins would strike first, as Kyle Criscuolo scored at the 8:23 mark of the period after Oleg Yevenko was sent to the penalty box for holding. Cleveland tied the score up on a Oliver Bjorkstrand power play goal that was set up by a beautiful pass from Sonny Milano with less than four minutes left in the first period.

The second period was a defensive battle, as Oleg Yevenko found himself in the penalty box for ten minutes due to misconduct along with a roughing penalty served by Sonny Milano. Evegny Svechnikov scored at the 10:18 mark for the lone goal of the period and the Griffins took a 2-1 lead into the third.

In the third period, Cleveland had a lot of good opportunities to score and did just that. Markus Hannikainen scored a breakaway goal on the power play to even things up at two at the 11:40 mark. That score would stay the same when the third period ended, so overtime was required.

In overtime, Cleveland scored a power play goal off of the stick of John Ramage to win the game by a score of 3-2.

Cleveland is now 9-11-1-1 and moves into 6th place in the Central Division standings.
