The Wolf Pack (33-31-1-6, 73 pts.) defeated three teams ahead of them in the Eastern Conference standings this past weekend, and have now won five straight, matching their longest win streak of the season. David LeNeveu posted his franchise-record third straight shutout Friday night at Eastern Conference-leading Manchester, making 37 saves in a 2-0 victory. The Pack then got their first win in six tries on the year against the Providence Bruins Saturday night at home, prevailing 2-1 in a shootout, and on Sunday at the XL Center, Jesper Fast’s two goals and an assist led the Wolf Pack to a 3-2 triumph over the Norfolk Admirals.
