The Wolf Pack (16-23-0-5, 37 pts.) enjoyed some home cooking this past week, and won two out of three XL Center games. Danny Kristo had his first career pro multiple-goal game with two goals, and added an assist, Wednesday night in a 5-2 win over Adirondack. A three-goal third-period comeback was not enough Friday evening against Providence, as the Pack fell 6-4 to the Bruins, despite two goals and an assist by Oscar Lindberg. The Wolf Pack did successfully come back from 2-0 and 3-1 third-period deficits Saturday vs. Albany, thrilling a season-high, “Pink in the Rink” Night crowd of 10,149 with a 4-3 shootout win over the Devils.
