WOLVES GAME RECAPS

Wolves ring up five goals in School-Day Game win

ROSEMONT, IL --- Rookie right wing Ty Rattie scored twice in the first period to set the tone for the Chicago Wolves to earn a 5-2 victory over Hamilton Wednesday afternoon during a School-Day Game at Allstate Arena.
Thousands of Chicago-area students also saw forwards Mark Mancari, Pat Cannone and Dmitrij Jaskin score for the Wolves (13-12-0-2) while Corey Locke, Brent Regner and Cade Fairchild registered two assists apiece.
"I think we played a solid game all-around," said Wolves head coach John Anderson. "Things went well for us even when we scored on ourselves."
Hamilton (12-13-0-3) scored the game’s first goal at 10:47 of the first period without touching the puck. With the Wolves possessing the puck in the offensive zone, the officials called a delayed penalty on the Bulldogs. Wolves goaltender Jake Allen left the ice to give Chicago an extra attacker, but a Wolves pass banked off the extra attacker’s skate and eased 140 feet down the ice into the unattended goal. Defenseman Morgan Ellis received credit for the tally.
The Wolves answered quickly on the power play as Rattie scored his team-leading 10th goal on a one-timer set up by Jaskin and Corey Locke at 11:43.

Late goal seals win over Griffins, 3-2

ROSEMONT, IL --- The Chicago Wolves received some late-game heroics from rookie left wing Dmitrij Jaskin, who scored with 2:09 left to complete the Wolves 3-2 victory over the Western Conference-leading Grand Rapids Griffins on Saturday night at Allstate Arena.
Right wing Mark Mancari (G, A) and defenseman David Shields also tallied for Chicago. Goaltender Jake Allen (12-7-2) held off a late flurry from the Griffins to finish the night with 20 saves.
"Grand Rapids never quits and I was happy to see us match their intensity late in the game," said Wolves head coach John Anderson. "We missed some point-blank chances early, but I was glad to get the game-winner in regulation."
