Bob CrawfordWOLF PACK WEEKLY: Oct 27-Nov 2, 2014

BY: Bob Crawford, Hartford Wolf Pack

The Wolf Pack (4-2-1-0, 9 pts.) had a busy four-game week this past week, and split four outings.

The schedule began with a visit to Worcester on Tuesday night, and the Pack pulled out a thrilling, 5-4 victory over the Sharks, with Mat Bodie’s first pro goal at 19:42 of the third period deciding the issue.  Danny Kristo had the Wolf Pack’s first three-point game of the year, with a goal and two assists, to help pace the Hartford attack against Worcester.

The Pack would then drop both ends of a home-and-home with Albany, though, suffering their first regulation loss of the season in a 7-3 home defeat on Friday and seeing the Devils score the last four goals of the game to win 5-2 in Albany on Saturday.

The Wolf Pack finished the week on a positive note Sunday at the XL Center, as rookie goaltender Mackenzie Skapski authored a 16-save shutout in his first AHL start, blanking the Norfolk Admirals by a score of 3-0.  Kristo again keyed the offense in that victory, with the game-winning goal and an assist.
