Whale's Last Regular-Season Home Game Yields 5-4 Shootout Loss via CT Whale

The Whale would take a short-lived 3-2 lead with 4:25 to play in the second, as Kris Newbury’s shot beat a screened Jones for his 25th goal of the season, assisted by Jonathan Audy-Marchessault and Thomas. The Whale would tie the game back up at four at 5:27, as Thomas ripped a shot from the point past Jones for his first professional goal, assisted by Newbury and Audy-Marchessault.

That score would hold through the rest of regulation and an amazing 24th trip to overtime for the Whale, as the teams went to the shootout for the first time in the season series. Audy-Marchessault would get the Whale out to a 1-0 lead, but Marc-Andre Cliché and Mullen would score for the Monarchs to win the shootout, 2-1, and the game, 5-4.
