PAW PRINTS: By The Numbers:

5 - American Hockey League teams with a .700 or above winning percentage through the schedule on Nov. 8; of these teams, all are in the Western Conference and three are in the Midwest Division, including the Wolves (.727).

34 - Shots allowed by the Wolves on Saturday night against Iowa, a season high; the team has allowed 30+ shots in two of its last three games (Nov. 2 at Milwaukee and Nov. 8 at Iowa) after surrendering 29 or fewer in the first eight games of the season.

2 - Games without a power-play goal for the Wolves, tying a season-high, who went 0-for-2 on Saturday night; Chicago has faced disciplined teams in Grand Rapids and Iowa over the past two games, having had just four power-play opportunities in that stretch.

ACES GAME RECAPS

Nov. 5, 2014

Out Of Time

ANCHORAGE, AK --- Frans Tuohimaa made 40 saves in his ECHL debut and Chase Schaber’s second period goal stood as the eventual game winner in a 3-2 Alaska Aces loss to the Bakersfield Condors on Wednesday at Sullivan Arena.
Corey Syvret and Greg Wolfe netted the Aces goals while Niklas Lundström stopped 26 shots, helping boost a late third period comeback sequence that fell short in the final minute after an apparent extra attacker goal by Olivier Archambault was waved off with 1:53 left in regulation.
Syvret lifted the Aces to a 1-0 lead with his first goal of the season at 6:53, off the rush while finishing a feed into the slot by Zach Pochiro. Brendan Nash’s first goal in a Bakersfield uniform leveled the game, 1-1 on a wrister from the left circle.
Both Lundström and Tuohimaa faced a heavy workload in the first period with Lundström coming up with 16 saves. Tuohimaa denied Justin Johnson on a wide-open chance late in the period, getting his right pad on Johnson’s backhanded deke.
Wolfe followed up with wrister ticketed for the upper corner in the second period that Tuohimaa stopped with his glove and Bakersfield continued their rally with two goals in the middle frame. Kellen Jones finished a give-and-go play at the right post at 6:27 for a 2-1 edge. A scrap between Jacob Doty and Gabriel Verpaelst, followed by two close looks at the Bakersfield net helped the Aces threaten, but a counterattack by Francis Verreault-Paul enabled a centering pass to Schaber, who converted the ricochet past Lundström for a 3-1 lead at 11:55.

The Aces, who earned their first home win of the season, buried two power-play goals and also produced a perfect 7-of-7 effort on the penalty kill, including a five-on-three situation in the third period. Archambault scored two goals, aided on Corey Syvret’s power play goal in the third period, and was involved in a scrap with Josh Winquist in the opening period.

ACES IN THE HOLE: Ryan Tesink is the only one of the four prospects assigned to Alaska by the Blues to have played in all nine games for the Aces to date, and is the only one with a goal ... Lundström has dressed for every game, but has only six "official" appearances.
