Pack Back In Second
Hulk smash things! Me grimace like Hulk!
After a horrendous 5-2 loss to the Worcester Sharks on Friday, the Hartford Wolf Pack took their three-game losing streak on the road over the weekend and won two games, against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins and the Providence Bruins.
Chris Holt was given the start in net against Wilkes-Barre on Saturday, with Al Montoya getting scratched for the night after being pulled in both of his previous two starts. Newcomer Andrew Gallant (since released) served as the back-up goalie, wearing number 96 (!).
The Wolf Pack took a 4-1 lead into the third period, but the Penguins scored twice in the third to close the gap and make the final score 4-3.
Those WBS Penguins Booster Club members are freakin' ruthless
Al Montoya was back in net against Providence on Sunday and responded admirably by shutting out the Bruins, 1-0. Alex Bourret's second period goal turned out to be all that the Pack needed. Brandon Dubinsky assisted on Bourret's goal, giving him points in all three of this past week's games (2g, 2a).
The loss was Providence's third in a row, allowing the Wolf Pack to leapfrog over the Bruins and into second in the division, three points ahead of Providence.
SInce this post is fairly skimpy on game details, I'll try to make up for it by closing things off with a couple of ugly jerseys from the teams that the Wolf Pack laid to waste over the weekend.
