Trevor Lewis scored his first goal of the season less than a minute into overtime to help the Manchester Monarchs beat the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, 4-3, to break a five-game winless streak.
Alec Martinez had a goal and three assists and Jeff Zaktoff made 26 saves as Manchester won for the first time since March 5. The win keeps the Monarchs tied for third in the Atlantic Division with Lowell at 79 points each. Manchester has another shot to add to that total with a 4 p.m. game at Portland on Sunday.
Lewis put in the game-winner just 41 seconds into the five-minute overtime. He received a pass from Oscar Moller as he entered the Sound Tigers zone and stuck the puck between the right arm of goalie Nathan Lawson and the post. Martinez also had an assist on the goal.
Manchester had a 3-1 lead on a power play goal by Martinez at the 13:36 mark of the second period. But Bridgeport pulled within one three minutes later on a Mike Radja goal, and tied the game midway through the third on a Tomas Marcinko goal.
Juraj Mikus and Justin Azevedo also had goals for the Monarchs.
