Wännström's OT winner caps Wolves rally

GRAND RAPIDS, MI --- The Chicago Wolves rallied from an early three-goal deficit to earn their first road and overtime wins of the season in a boisterous 6-5 overtime victory against Grand Rapids on Friday night at Van Andel Arena.
Right wing Sebastian Wännström ended it 1:56 into overtime to complete the comeback that featured tallies from forwards Philip McRae (2G), Ty Rattie, Shane Harper, and Jeremy Welsh. Four skaters --- McRae, Wännström (G, A), Chris Butler (2A), and Rob Bordson (2A) --- contributed multiple points for the Wolves (4-1-2-0).

Wolves reel off five unanswered goals for win

ROSEMONT, IL --- The Chicago Wolves shrugged off an early Milwaukee goal and rolled to a 5-1 victory Saturday night in an Amtrak Rivalry contest at Allstate Arena.
Forward Jeremy Welsh notched two goals while defenseman Petteri Lindbohm and forwards Yannick Veilleux and Shane Harper added markers for the Wolves (5-1-2-0). Goaltender Jordan Binnington stopped 18 shots to earn his first win of the season.
"We came out a little flat the first 4-5 minutes," said Wolves head coach John Anderson. "Lindbohm’s goal picked us up. Then we were really solid. I think it was a good team win. Everybody was doing their part. I don’t think there were any weak sisters out there."

PAW PRINTS: Beginning today, the Wolves will play their next nine games on the road, not returning to Allstate Arena until Nov. 22 ... Defenseman Jani Hakanpää was reassigned to Quad Cities of the ECHL by the Blues, on a conditioning assignment ... If the playoffs started today, four of the five Midwest Division teams -- Rockford (7-2-0-1, 15 pts), the Wolves (5-1-2-0, 12 pts), Milwaukee (6-2-0-0, 12 pts) and Lake Erie (4-4-0-1, 9 pts) -- would be in the Western Conference mix.
