Well this past week, it was the tale of two teams, the Wolves team who played the Admirals in
Friday night the Wolves played the final game of their annual circus road trip and they came away with their 2nd consecutive 6-3 victory against the Admirals. This was by far the most dominant game by the Wolves this season. Darren Haydar got things started off an Admirals turnover in the first, to continue his monster season (7-12-19 through 15 games). Goals by Connauton, Longpre, Sweatt, and Duco followed in the 2nd as the Wolves built a 5-0 lead before
Saturday night the Wolves were welcomed home with a crowd of nearly 11,000, but it didn’t help. They looked extremely flat to start the game.
The Rampage had just lost Michael Repik, Tim Kennedy, and top NHL goaltending prospect Jacob Markstrom, and I believe the Wolves took them lightly to start the game. I did like the way the Wolves responded, after a 17 shot first period, they only allowed 9 shots the rest of the game.
Player of the week – Anton Rodin – I was going to make Darren Haydar the player of the week again, after 5 points in two games, but Anton Rodin’s goal against the Rampage was so pretty, I had to make him player of the week and without further adieu…..
Next for the Wolves, a Wednesday night matchup in
