Wolf Pack flatten Falcons, 6-3

We're no longer called Sonic Death Monkey. We're on the verge of becoming Kathleen Turner Overdrive, but just for tonight, we are Barry Jive and his Uptown Five. Martin Sonnenberg (Rutsch photo)

All-Star defenseman Thomas Pöck recorded his third 4-point game of the season (1g, 3a), with defenseman Dan Girardi posting three assists of his own, as the Hartford Wolf Pack beat the Springfield Falcons at home on Wednesday night, 6-3. Hartford came into the game having lost 3 of their last 4 at home. The win allowed the Wolf Pack to gain a bit of ground in their division, with second-place Manchester and first-place Portland being idle.

Robert Gherson was credited with the win for the Pack, as Al Montoya was pulled (for the second time in 8 days) after giving up 3 goals on Springfield's first 10 shots. Martin Sonnenberg, a gritty winger newly acquired for ineffective floater Jeff Taffe, played his first game in a Pack uniform, on a line with Craig Weller and Chad Wiseman.

The line of Dawes - Genoway - Helminen was back together again, after a two-game break due to Helminen's groin injury, and it was a productive reunion as Dawes scored his 21th goal of the season, with Genoway scoring his 16th. Alexandre Giroux (19), Chad Wiseman (9), and Hugh Jessiman (2) also scored goals for the Wolf Pack.

Now that it’s just past the halfway point in the season, some people like to hand out "report cards” on all of the players. For instance, you could log on to HockeyTurd and get some useable info written by a guy who actually goes to Wolf Pack games and knows what he’s talking about, or you can go to some other guy.

I always love when the Pack play the Fal-goons. It is like a vision into the Wolf*Pack future. Their goons will one day be the Pack goons. Only difference -- they will win in Hartford.

Strange how that happens.

Just like it's funny how one team's goon, who's a perfect angel in the eyes of their fans, all of a sudden becomes a dirty player to them when he goes to another team and does the same chippy things he did before, only now he's wearing a different jersey.

Strange how that happens.

The one wearing the Shane Willis (6', 190) jersey, in a size 60. There's not much of a chance for that one to be mistaken for a game-worn, unless Shane wore three sets of pads underneath it or something.
