D Mark Barberio, MCT: 0-1-1, -1, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
Season Totals: 45 GP, 10-30-40, +28, 48 PIM

Barberio has points in 11 of his last 12 games. Moncton completed the weekend road trip through Quebec 3-0, with all their wins coming in convincing fashion. Barberio hit 40 points for the third straight season, though he’s well on pace to smash his career high of 46 points set in 70 games two years ago.

G Michael Zador, OSH: Win, shutout, 32 saves on 32 shots, *First Star*
Season Totals: 32 GP, 12-15-2-1, 3.47 GAA, .897 sv%, 2 SO

A huge performance for Zador, and he did it for a team that can’t seem to close the floodgates when it comes to the opposition scoring. The win breaks a personal six-game losing streak for Zador. It’s his second career shutout, and first since a 37-save performance on October 9 against Erie.
