Game Notes:     Tonights game is the home opener for the Pirates, who
are in their 6th season of existance.  The Lock Monsters play their
first road game in franchise history. 

The Lock Monsters will look to defeat division rival Portland for the
2nd straight game.  Portland has struggled in the early going this
year. They dropped the opener in Lowell and then lost the following
night in Saint John, NB against the Flames. 

The Lock Monsters are coming off a disappointing showing against the
Beast of New Haven.  Coach Frank Anzalone had the team working very
hard all week as he was disappointed in the effort his team gave last
weekend.  

Coach Anzalone expects a hard-fought defensive style to be played so
look for that to happen now that the team has had  a little more time
to gel as a group.
