Charlotte Checkers Preview
The Checkers will begin a stretch of four games in six nights tonight as they take on the Abbotsford Heat. This will be the first game between the two teams this season.
Charlotte won an impressive game over the Lake Erie Monsters on Saturday, scoring two goals with less than three minutes left to win the game in regulation. Zach Boychuk and Aaron Palushaj have been leading the team lately. Boychuk had a hattrick in the last game.
John Muse has continued to be the go-to in net for the Checkers, but with such a busy schedule, fans will likely see Mike Murphy in a couple of games.
The Heat are fourth in the West, while the Checkers are in 10th.
