WOLVES ROLL TO VICTORY IN OPENER
ROSEMONT, IL --- The Chicago Wolves opened the 2015-16 season with a jolt as they scored three power-play goals in the first period to trigger a 5-1 win over the Milwaukee Admirals Saturday night in an Amtrak Rivalry clash at Allstate Arena. Forwards Magnus Pääjärvi, Pat Cannone and Ty Rattie produced power-play goals in a 10-minute, 20-second stretch of the first as the Wolves (1-0-0-0) seized control of their 22nd season opener.
Rattie added another power-play goal in the second period, defenseman Andre Benoit notched 3 assists, and goaltender Jordan Binnington posted 16 saves in the Wolves’ highest-scoring season opener since a 5-0 win over Peoria in 2006.
Chicago’s 4 power-play goals were the team’s most since tallying 5 on Nov. 27, 2010, against Grand Rapids.
"We worked on it for the last three days, so I'm glad we had some chances," said Wolves head coach John Anderson. "We had a couple fortunate bounces, too, where they tried to clear it and we knocked it down, but you always have to have a few breaks to score on the power play."
PAW PRINTS: With the opening-night win, Binnington's AHL career record against Milwaukee now sits at a sparkling 8-0-0-0 ... The Admirals debuted their new-look kit last night, and the new logo is a marked improvement over the old ... Of the 14 Blues-contracted prospects (players under age 25) assigned to the Wolves, 11 saw action last night; German defenseman Konrad Abeltshauser and St. Louis native Zach Pochiro were healthy scratches, and newly-acquired goalie Pheonix Copley served in the backup role.
