The Wolf Pack (12-9-2-1, 27 pts.) grabbed a share of third place in the Northeast Division this past week, by collecting three out of a possible six points in a three-game weekend.  The stretch started with a wild game in Syracuse Friday night, with the Wolf Pack giving up five goals in the first period before storming back to climb to within one goal, and ultimately losing 6-5.  Chris Bourque and Danny Kristo had a goal and an assist each in that game.  On Saturday at home vs. Springfield, the Wolf Pack battled the red-hot Falcons to a standoff, but could never beat Falcon goaltender Anton Forsberg in what became a 1-0 shootout loss.  Cedrick Desjardins earned his first Wolf Pack shutout in that one, making 31 saves.  The Pack finished the weekend on a high note at home Sunday, downing the Binghamton Senators 4-2.  That victory was buoyed by a team season-high 45 saves by Mackenzie Skapski, two goals from Danny Kristo, and Chris Bourque’s goal and two assists.

The Wolf Pack (8-3-1-0, 17 pts.) won two of their three games this past week, to move into a tie for tops in the Eastern Conference.  In the Wolf Pack’s “school day special”, morning-start game at the XL Center Wednesday, the Pack grabbed their first victory over the Albany Devils in three tries on the season, 3-1, on the strength of third-period power-play goals by Ryan Haggerty and Oscar Lindberg.  Then, Ken Gernander’s club traveled down to Hershey for their first back-to-back road games of the season, and split a pair of contests with the Bears.  The Wolf Pack led 2-0 Saturday, after Lindberg and J.T. Miller scored, but Hershey roared back with four goals in the last 9:53 of the third period and handed the Pack a 4-2 defeat.  Hartford turned the tables in Sunday’s rematch, though, battling back from 1-0 and 2-1 deficits to post a 3-2 victory, with Lindberg’s second goal of the game early in the third period providing the winning margin
