The Wolf Pack (19-25-0-6, 44 pts.) played their fourth three-game weekend of the season this past week, and garnered three out of a possible six points. J.T. Miller had the Wolf Pack’s first four-point game in nearly two years Friday in Springfield, with two goals and two assists, pacing the Pack to a 5-2 win over the division-leading Falcons. The Wolf Pack struck first in Saturday’s home matchup against Manchester, owners of the top point total in the AHL, but then gave up the next three goals in what turned out to be a 4-2 loss. Then on Sunday in Providence, Dov Grumet-Morris made 42 saves in a 3-2 shootout loss to the Bruins.
