 The Hartford Wolf Pack did it again!

The New York Rangers’ AHL affiliates went to their fourth consecutive overtime game tying a franchise record set back in March of 2001 and pulled out yet another victory.

Allen fired a wide shot and it caromed off the backboards to an open Ryan Haggerty who put the bouncing puck under the crossbar of a wide open net at 4:10. Continue reading
