The Manchester Monarchs returned to the ice on Wednesday night with a 4-2 road victory over the Adirondack Thunder.

Adirondack’s Ty Loney made the first mark on the evening’s score sheet, tipping in a shot from Terrance Wallin at the first period’s 7:13 mark for his sixth point of the year against the Monarchs.

Pierre-Luc Mercier tied the contest back up after Manchester’s Zac Lynch and Matt Schmalz recorded goals in the first half of the second period, but that would be the Thunder’s last score of the evening.

Jordan LaVallee-Smotherman gave Manchester back the lead with just under two minutes left before the second intermission and Matt Leitner added an empty net goal just a minute before the final horn to increase his points streak to nine games.

Manchester (17-9-1-1) now heads to Reading for a 7 p.m. puck drop on Friday night.
