MANCHESTER, N.H. — Jordon Southorn’s power-play goal a minute into the third period helped the Portland Pirates beat the Manchester Monarchs 3-0 in an American Hockey League game Sunday.

Portland added two empty-net goals to seal the victory.

Manchester (22-7-1-1), which had a five-game winning streak snapped, leads the Eastern Conference’s Atlantic Division with 46 points. The Pirates (16-15-1-0) moved into a tie with the Providence Bruins for second in the Atlantic Division with 33 points.

Mike McKenna starred in net for Portland, stopping 37 shots. Maine killed eight Manchester power plays

“Mike was good. Our penalty killing was good,” said Pirates Coach Ray Edwards. “(Manchester) had the puck and buzzed around. But we stayed inside the dots and we blocked shots. We found a way to win the game.”

The Monarchs outshot Portland 26-12 in the first two periods.

“We had to play fast … and make it hard on some of their skilled players,” said Edwards. “We defended really well …blocked a lot of shots tonight and gave up the body. We did a nice job letting Mike see the puck.”

“The power play got a big goal for us.”

Southorn took a cross-ice pass from Henrik Samuelsson and one-timed the puck past Patrik Bartosak 57 seconds into the third for his first career AHL goal.

Jordan Martinook also had an assist on the play.

With Bartosak off for the extra attacker, Philip Samuelsson scored an empty-net goal with 56 seconds left. Martinook also scored an empty-netter with 19 seconds left.

n The Arizona Coyotes recalled forward Tyler Gaudet from Portland.

The 21-year-old Gaudet had four goals and four assists in 29 games for Portland this season.
