"Game Time " PROSPECT SUNDAY for November 8, 2015

Lots of movement in the St. Louis - Quad Cities - Chicago triangle this week. The Blues swapped rats for umlauts, and two St. Louis natives found themselves wearing the burgundy and gold by the end of the week. Ryan Tesink is still plugging away for the Mallards, and Niklas Lundstrom remains in limbo for now...

WOLVES, COPLEY MUZZLE THE MOOSE

ROSEMONT, IL --- Goaltender Pheonix Copley stopped all 26 shots he faced to pace the Chicago Wolves to a 2-0 victory over the Manitoba Moose on Sunday afternoon at Allstate Arena.Centers Pat Cannone and Jeremy Welsh scored for the Wolves (5-1-0-1), who maintained their lead in the Central Division and equaled the second-best start in the franchise’s 22-year history.
Copley, who blanked Charlotte on Oct. 25 in his last appearance, became the first Wolves goaltender to produce shutouts in consecutive starts since Kari Lehtonen on Nov. 20 and 24, 2004. Pasi Nurminen and Wendell Young are the only other Wolves goaltenders to post back-to-back shutouts.
"Pheonix made some big saves for us," said Wolves head coach John Anderson. "It’s hard when you have a shutout and don’t play the next game, but we’re playing so few games and he and Jordan Binnington have been playing so well."
The Wolves opened the scoring at 4:20 of the second period with a gorgeous tic-tac-toe play that ended with Cannone’s goal from below the right circle. Chicago’s forecheck forced a turnover from behind the Manitoba net. Zach O’Brien’s pass from the right circle went into the slot for Ivan Barbashev, whose quick pass to Cannone led to a one-timer past Manitoba goaltender Eric Comrie.

WOLVES RALLY STOPS RAMPAGE

SAN ANTONIO, TX --- In a showdown between the top two teams in the AHL’s Western Conference, Danny Kristo's goal 3:26 into overtime lifted the Chicago Wolves to a 4-3 victory over the San Antonio Rampage Friday night at AT&T Center.
Defenseman Jordan Schmaltz and forwards Yannick Veilleux and Jeremy Welsh also scored for the Central Division-leading Wolves (6-1-0-1), who forced overtime with 55 seconds left in regulation on Welsh's goal.
Kristo delivered the game-winner during 3-on-3 overtime action. Captain Pat Cannone saucered a pass from the top of the left circle to Kristo, who skated to the right faceoff dot and rifled a shot past San Antonio goaltender Calvin Pickard.
San Antonio (5-0-3-0) opened the scoring at 16:20 of the first period as defenseman Maxim Noreau launched a blast from the right point that whizzed through traffic into the net. The Rampage boosted their lead to 2-0 just 14 seconds into the second period as forward Borna Rendulic took a pass at center ice, scissored through the Wolves defense and tucked the puck past goaltender Jordan Binnington.
The Wolves cut the margin to 2-1 at 2:35 of the second on Schmaltz's first goal as a professional. Kristo carried the puck into the offensive zone, sliced through the middle and fed Schmaltz near the bottom of the right circle for a quick flip. Ivan Barbashev also earned an assist on the play. Chicago evened the score at 8:40 on Veilleux's third goal of the season. Evan Trupp won a faceoff that led to Scooter Vaughan's wrist shot from the top of the left circle. Veilleux crashed the slot, seized the rebound and backhanded it past Pickard.

MALLARDS FALL TO FUEL 5-2 IN INDIANAPOLIS

INDIANAPOLIS, IN --- Five different players scored for the host Indy Fuel (5-3-1) and Shane Owen made 23 saves as the Fuel defeated Quad City Mallards (4-4-3) 5-2 Saturday night.
After first taking the lead one minute and 38 seconds into the game, the Fuel remained in control for much of the night. Rhett Bly provided the early opener by burying Daniel Ciampini's centering pass. At the sixteen minute mark of the first Peter Schneider converted a centering pass from Dylan Clarke to stretch the gap to 2-0.
The Mallards delivered a ferocious response early in the second period to briefly tie game. Oilvier Archambault got the Mallards on the scoreboard from the slot at 1:40 of the second; at 4:11 Vladimir Nikiforov evened the score at two on a breakaway. However, the deadlock would last less than two minutes before Josh Brittain pounced on a rebound to put Indy back on top for good at the 6:07 mark. Garrett Bembridge's wrist shot from the left wing circle reestablished the Fuel's two goal lead at 15:54 of the middle frame.

DUCK TALES: With Pochiro's callup to the Wolves earlier this week, center Ryan Tesink is now the only Blues' prospect currently skating for the Mallards ... Tesink still has just the two fighting majors so far, but hasn't dropped the mitts since Oct. 23, and his two points this year (both assists) came in one game, a 5-2 win over Wichita at the iWireless Center on Oct. 25.
