The Wolf Pack (24-13-3-2, 53 pts.) headed into the AHL’s All-Star break by winning two of their three games this past week.  Yann Danis posted his first Wolf Pack shutout in Wednesday’s home game against Providence, making 27 saves in a 1-0 win.  On Friday night at the XL Center, a lower-bowl sellout crowd of 5,917 saw the Wolf Pack battle back from three one-goal deficits to edge Northeast Division-leading Springfield, 4-3.  Oscar Lindberg (2-1-3) and Joey Crabb (1-2-3) led the way offensively in that one, with three points each.  A Saturday-night visit to Syracuse yielded a 3-2 loss, the first Wolf Pack regulation defeat in eight games (6-1-1-0).

HARTFORD, CT – All it took was just one mistake and the red-hot Hartford Wolf Pack converted it into two points and extended their current winning streak to five games.

Justin Vaive, playing for the first time in the last eleven games (December 19) was, “Mr. Hustle” all night and it was most evident on the game’s only goal as the Pack beat the visiting Providence Bruins 1-0 victory Wednesday night before an announced crowd of 2,744 at the XL Center.

Vaive outraced Bruins’ defenseman, Joe Morrow, to the puck. Bruins goaltender Malcolm Subban went to play the puck, but couldn’t get back into the net in time as Vaive sent the puck back out and it went off Subban’s skate and into the net. For Vaive, it was his ninth of the season and came with just 3:59 left on the clock. Continue reading
