"Game Time " PROSPECT SUNDAY for October 18, 2015

Big rookie blueliner Colton Parayko has a big night in Calgary in front of his family, scoring his first NHL goal and the game-winner. Down on the farm, the Wolves split a pair of high-scoring games in Rosemont, and the Quad City Mallards earn three of a possible four points in their season-opening road trip with minimal contributions from Blues' prospects.

WOLVES SEE STARS IN DEFEAT

ROSEMONT, IL --- The Chicago Wolves forged a tie late in the second period, but the Texas Stars reeled off three straight goals to pull away for a 7-3 victory Friday night at Allstate Arena.
Defenseman Peter Harrold and forwards Danny Kristo and Ty Rattie scored for the Wolves, who owned a 2-2 tie in the second period for just 40 seconds before Texas struck twice in nine seconds to regain momentum.
"I thought we took control of the game," said Wolves head coach John Anderson. "Then one bad play and it ends up in the back of our net. Then they made a great play on the power play. We had it covered and it still went in."

WOLVES CROWN THE CHECKERS

ROSEMONT, IL --- The Chicago Wolves unleashed a five-goal barrage in the first period and cruised to a 9-5 triumph over the Charlotte Checkers on Saturday night at Allstate Arena. Forwards Danny Kristo, Ty Rattie, Pat Cannone, Magnus Paajarvi and Ivan Barbashev each contributed 3 points — Barbashev the only one with 2 goals — while forward Jordan Caron and defensemen Scooter Vaughan and Andre Benoit notched the other goals for the Wolves (2-1-0-0).
"We talked about it before we came on the ice," said Wolves head coach John Anderson. "Last night, we didn't play very well in the first period, so I wanted them to bring it right away. We had a bit of jump. We gave up 5 goals, but I'd take 60 9-5 wins a year."
The Wolves opened the scoring with Kristo’s goal exactly as a power play expired at 4:44 of the first. Paajarvi and Peter Harrold fed the puck to the end boards for Kristo, who darted toward the net and squeezed a quick backhand past Charlotte starter Rasmus Tirronen.
Charlotte (3-1-0-0) recovered quickly as former Wolves defenseman Jake Chelios elevated a blast past goaltender Jordan Binnington at 5:20 to make it 1-1.
Chicago regained the lead at 7:26 when Vaughan, making his Wolves debut, stepped into a shot in the high slot and knuckled the puck beyond Tirronen’s glove. Vaughan’s goal prompted Charlotte coach Mark Morris to insert goaltender Drew MacIntyre into the fray.
MacIntyre didn’t have much of a chance on Benoit’s power-play goal at 13:02 of the first that pushed the Wolves’ margin to 3-1. Cannone and Kristo executed quick passes and the puck skidded to the high slot to Benoit, who guided it through heavy traffic and MacIntyre as well.
Charlotte cut the lead to 3-2 at 15:09 as the Checkers took advantage of a 5-on-3 power play with defenseman Trevor Carrick’s blast from the right point.
The Wolves capped their first-period outburst with goals from Rattie and Cannone 53 seconds apart during 4-on-4 action. Rattie scored at 17:41 when Barbashev won a faceoff to set up Rattie’s wrister from the right circle, then Rattie set up Cannone in the slot for a one-timer that required video replay to confirm the goal.

PAW PRINTS: St. Louis native Zach Pochiro was a healthy scratch in both games this weekend, and may be ticketed for the Quad Cities sooner rather than later ... With seven points in three games (4 G, 3 A), Rattie is in a four-way tie for second place in the AHL scoring race early on, one point behind league leader Frank Vatrano of providence (5 GP, 7-1-8). Veteran Pat Cannonne (3 HP, 2-4-6) is currently ranked 11th in league scoring, and Magnus "The Lord of Umlauts" Pääjärvi is 19th (3 GP, 2-3-5).

THUNDER OUTLASTS MALLARDS 5-4 IN SHOOTOUT

WICHITA, KS --- Ian Lowe delivered the winning goal in the shootout after picking up two assists in regulation as the Wichita Thunder (2-0-0) scored a dramatic 5-4 shootout victory Saturday night over the Quad City Mallards (1-0-1), who came from behind three times on the way to earning one point.
Lowe roofed the puck to snap a 1-1 tie in the shootout after Joey Sides had first given the Thunder a shootout lead and Raphael Bussieres had replied for the Mallards.
The Mallards forced a wild overtime period that saw each team go on the power play but did not produce a goal when Matt Neal- who also had an assist- tied the game at four from the slot with just 1:46 left in regulation. Neal's late goal wiped out a lead given to the Thunder by Andrew Huff from point blank range at 2:49 of the third period.
