MANCHESTER – Left wing Andy Andreoff, right wing Sean Backman, right wing Brian O'Neill, and defenseman Nick Deslauriers each scored goals and right wing Brandon Kozun picked up two assists as the Manchester Monarchs defeated the Providence Bruins, 4-1, at the Verizon Wireless Arena on Saturday night.

Manchester (8-1-1-2) leads the Atlantic Division with 19 points. Providence (4-4-0-2) is ranked third in the Atlantic Division with 10 points.

"(Martin) Jones has been great; we've had timely scoring," said Monarchs Head Coach Mark Morris. "Every game has been nip and tuck, and this one too, even though the score was 4-1, it was a lot closer than that. We had some key penalty kills in the second period. I thought we were really (relaxed) in the second and we opened the doors for them. We had a lot of giveaways and turnovers but we challenged the guys between the second and third, and they responded well."

Jones (8-1-2) earned his eighth win of the season stopping 30-of-31 shots. Subban (0-3-0) took his third loss of the season making 30 saves on 33 shots.
