The Wolf Pack (25-28-0-6, 56 pts.) moved to within two points of third place in the Northeast Division this past week, by winning two out of three games. The Pack scored their most lopsided victory of the year Friday night at the XL Center against Northeast Division-leading Springfield, downing the Falcons by a score of 6-2. Saturday saw the Wolf Pack eke out a 4-3 win at home over the Albany Devils, but then a Pack comeback from a 3-0 deficit fell short Sunday in Manchester, in a 3-2 loss to the league-leading Monarchs. J.T. Miller keyed the Wolf Pack offense in the three games, rolling up 2-6-8, including a four-point performance (1-3-4) in Saturday’s win.
