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

This week:

The Wolf Pack have three games upcoming this weekend, two of them at home.   This season’s Battle of Connecticut between the Wolf Pack and the Bridgeport Sound Tigers begins with a home-and-home series, Friday night at the XL Center and Saturday evening in Bridgeport, with both games facing off at 7:00 PM.  The Pack are then back on home ice on Sunday, for a 3:00 PM game vs. the Manchester Monarchs.

Hershey, PA, November 8, 2014 – The Hershey Bears scored four third-period goals Saturday night at Giant Center, erasing a 2-0 deficit to defeat the Hartford Wolf Pack 4-2, in the first of back-to-back games between the two teams.

The loss snapped a four-game winning streak for the Wolf Pack, who fell to 7-3-1-0 on the season.

“Obviously it’s tough to lose that game, I thought we outplayed them for 50 minutes,” Miller said. It’s just a matter of how it works, you’ve got to find ways to win that hockey game.” Continue reading
