Belleville Sens fall to Monsters in low scoring contest

January 14, 2023

Josh Dunne scored twice and Pavel Cajan made 32 saves as the Belleville Senators saw their three-game win streak come to an end with a 2-1 loss to the Cleveland Monsters on Friday night at CAA Arena.

After a scoreless first period, Cleveland opened the tallying at the 5:19 mark of the middle stanza when Josh Dunne found the back of the net with a redirection on the power play to give the visitors a 1-0 lead after forty minutes.

In the third, Scott Sabourin continued this impressive play in the offensive zone, collecting his 12th of the season with a nifty backhand to even the score. Later in the frame, the resilient Monsters restored their advantage while securing the hard-fought victory as Dunne notched his second of the contest while shorthanded with under eight minutes to play in regulation time.

The Senators are back in action tomorrow night when they host the Manitoba Moose for their annual Bell Let’s Talk game, with puck drop scheduled for 7:05 p.m.
