Worcester, MA, October 21, 2014 – Rookie defenseman Mat Bodie’s first pro goal, scored with 17.9 seconds left in the third period, gave the Hartford Wolf Pack a 5-4 win over the Worcester Sharks Tuesday night at the DCU Center.

The Wolf Pack let a 4-2 lead slip away in the third, but with the game seemingly headed for overtime, Tommy Hughes and Danny Kristo combined to get the puck to Bodie, who moved to the left-wing faceoff dot and launched a shot that went high into the net behind Worcester goaltender Troy Grosenick, a former teammate, and roommate, of Bodie’s at Union College.  Continue reading

Hartford, CT, October 19, 2014 – Jason Missiaen made 36 saves for the Hartford Wolf Pack Sunday at the XL Center, but Casey Wellman’s rebound goal with 1.5 seconds remaining in overtime gave the Hershey Bears a 1-0 win.

With Dylan McIlrath in the penalty box for tripping and the Bears on a four-on-three man advantage, Missiaen stopped a Connor Carrick shot and the rebound came to Wellman on the left-wing side. Wellman’s shot hit Missiaen, went up in the air and dropped behind the Wolf Pack goaltender and slid over the goal line.

“I got the first one, and then the second one,” Missiaen said, “and I don’t know, I think the third one hit something and deflected in somehow, but it dropped right in front of the net.” Continue reading

Strating netminder, Jason Missiaen, who was very strong in the game for the home team made two saves before Wellman got the rebound of his second shot and it somehow found it’s way over the goal line.
