HARTFORD, CT The Wolf Pack (3-3-0-1, 7 pts., .500) played their first three-game weekend this past week and went 0-2-0-1 in the three contests.  Hartford had a three-game winning streak snapped Friday night in their first-ever meeting with the Belleville Senators, falling by a score of 5-1.  On Saturday night at Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, the Wolf Pack jumped out to a 2-0 lead, on first-period power-play goals by Scott Kosmachuk and Vinni Lettieri, only to see the Penguins come back to win 3-2 in a shootout.  Goaltender Alexandar Georgiev made 41 saves in that game.  Then on Sunday, in their first encounter with in-state rival Bridgeport, the Wolf Pack dropped a 6-3 road decision to the Sound Tigers, despite both Brandon Crawley and Vince Pedrie both scoring their first pro goals.

HARTFORD, CT – For a second home game in a row, Steven Fogarty was the hero with a shootout goal to help the Hartford Wolf Pack get a 4-3 win over the Providence Bruins before 3,268 at the XL Center Sunday afternoon.

With the shootout tied at one goal each, Fogarty successfully executed the same move he did on Wednesday night against the Springfield Thunderbirds. Fogarty chugged down the right wing and snapped his shot to the far side past the Bruins’ goalie, Anton Khudobin.

“I was just hoping they weren’t watching any film or anything on me,” Fogarty said with a laugh.“It’s nice to contribute when you can and it nice to do it at home.” Continue reading
