The Wolf Pack (11-16-0-4, 26 pts.) wrapped up their calendar-year 2013 action with wins in two out of their three games last week. The Pack snapped an 0-7-0-2 drought on Thursday with a 3-1 win in Bridgeport, and then posted their first overtime victory of the year Saturday night at home, edging Worcester 3-2. A streak of three straight games with a standings point (2-0-0-1) came to an end Sunday in Manchester, as the AHL-leading Monarchs knocked off the Wolf Pack, 5-2. Oscar Lindberg scored his first career North American pro overtime goal to win Saturday’s game, after notching a goal and an assist Thursday.
