Manitoba’s game versus Milwaukee on Tuesday, Nov. 22 represents the first time this season that the Moose will be playing in a contest that is on a day that isn’t a Friday, Saturday or Sunday.

Three different netminders played on Tuesday in 2021-22 with Arvid Holm coming up with a 1-1-0 record, 2.46 goals-against average and a .906 save percentage.
