Wolves Overpowered 4-1 in Rochester

ROCHESTER, NY --- The Chicago Wolves could not maintain the offensive outburst they enjoyed on Sunday as they fell to the Rochester Americans 4-1 Wednesday night at Blue Cross Arena.
Center Adam Cracknell tallied the lone goal for Chicago in his third game for the Wolves while goaltender Jake Allen (17-11-2) stopped 18 of 21 shots.
The Wolves (23-16-2-2) started quickly as they dented the net just 15 seconds into the game, the team’s fastest opening goal of the season. Following a faceoff win, Chicago collected itself in its own zone before starting the breakout. Cracknell carried the puck up the wall before dishing it to Ty Rattie, who handed it back to Cracknell in front of the net for a tap-in and the center’s first goal in a Wolves uniform.
