ROAD STRUGGLESThe Checkers were able to pick up their first road win of the season on Saturday, but they continue to have trouble away from home. Charlotte is 1-3-1-1 on the road thus far, sitting with the second-lowest road points percentage in the Atlantic Division.
On the flip side, the Checkers are 5-1-0-0 at Bojangles Coliseum, tying them for the second-most home wins in the AHL.
ALMIGHTY ATLANTICThe Atlantic Division has been a powerhouse early on this season. Every team clocks in with at least a .500 points percentage - something that no other division in the league can boast - and three of the top four teams in the league-wide standings come from the Atlantic.
HEPO HELPS OUTAfter returning from an NHL recall, Aleksi Heponiemi came out flying over the weekend and posted a helper in each of Charlotte’s three road contests. Dating back to before his NHL stint - which saw him tally one point in two games for Florida - Heponiemi is currently riding a five-game point streak when suiting up for the Checkers.
POWERING UPWhile their overall offense has hit a rough patch, the Checkers’ power play has been firing on all cylinders as of late. The unit ranks fifth in the AHL with a 24.5 success rate and has found the back of the net in three consecutive games. In fact, the Checkers have scored multiple power-play goals in three of their last five games.
HIGHLIGHT OF THE WEEKAnton Levtchi pulled off an unreal move on a breakaway to light the lamp in Saturday's win!
