Charlotte Checkers Recap

Things only got worse for the Checkers in their second game against the Hershey Bears last night as they fell again. This time by a score of 8-1. ZAch Boychuk was the only Checker to get on the board.

Unlike last night, John Muse gave up the majority of goals, letting seven in. Rick DiPietri came on in relief, allowing one goal. While Muse has played well in the past couple of weeks, Mike Murphy will get a chance to help the goaltending as he should be sent back down soon.

The Checkers are now on a five-game losing streak and things have not looked good as the team has a combined 21-9 score against them over those five games. Things have to start changing or we could see some major changes for the team.
