Monarchs win, reach conference finals.

The Manchester Monarchs won Game 6 of their AHL Calder Cup semifinal series on Friday, beating the Worcester Sharks 2-1 in overtime thanks to a Viatcheslav Voynov goal 1:55 into the extra frame. Former Reign forward Bud Holloway got the secondary assist on the winning goal, extending his point streak to 10 games.

Manchester will not have home-ice advantage when they begin play against the Hershey Bears, a Washington Capitals affiliate, in the Eastern Conference Finals next Wednesday.
