WOLVES RALLY, BUT FALL IN SHOOTOUT

ROCKFORD, IL --- The Chicago Wolves scored twice late to force overtime, but the Rockford IceHogs claimed a 4-3 shootout win in Illinois Lottery Cup action on Friday night at the MetroCentre.
Forwards Jeremy Welsh and Pat Cannone tallied in the third period to rally the Wolves (2-1-0-1) from a 3-1 deficit and force overtime. Right wing Danny Kristo produced a goal and an assist for Chicago.
"I thought we had a pretty solid game," said Wolves head coach John Anderson. "I liked the way we battled back. I thought we took the play to them from the second period on."

MALLARDS DOWN OILERS 5-3

MOLINE, IL --- Raphael Bussieres scored the third period game winner and added a late empty net goal and Brody Hoffman made 25 saves in his professional debut as the host Quad City Mallards (2-1-1) defeated the Tulsa Oilers (2-3-0) 5-3 Saturday night.
Bussieres provided the Mallards' fourth lead of the night by breaking a 3-3 tie with a backhander from the right wing circle at 14:37 of the third. He clinched victory after the Oilers pulled goaltender Jussi Olkinuora by putting the puck into the unguarded Tulsa net while falling to the ice with just 20 seconds left.
Bussieres finished off the Oilers after Phil Brewer had tipped home his second goal of the night and the Oilers' third equalizer of the contest at 3:08 of the third. Darren McMillan assisted on three Mallard goals including both of those scored by Bussieres. McMillan was, along with Bussieres, Miles Koules (one goal and one assist), Logan Nelson (one goal and one assist) and Olivier Archambault (two assists), one of five Mallards who recorded multiple points.

DUCK TALES: As predicted last week, the Blues assigned center Zach Pochiro to the Quad this week after he had been a healthy scratch with the Chicago Wolves ... Pochiro and Ryan Tesink are now the only Blues' prospects currently skating for the Mallards, as goalie Niklas Lundstrom has been recalled to the Wolves ... Tesink has racked up two fighting majors in four games played, and is the Mallards' penalty leader at present with 12 minutes.
