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 heâ€™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 canâ€™t seem to close the floodgates when it comes to the opposition scoring. The win breaks a personal six-game losing streak for Zador. Itâ€™s his second career shutout, and first since a 37-save performance on October 9 against Erie.
