The Wolf Pack (7-5-0-2, 16 pts.) dropped a pair of games to the Providence Bruins this past weekend. On Friday night at home, the Pack fought back from a 6-2 deficit to close the gap to 6-5, but ended up on the short end of an 8-5 score. Then on Sunday in Providence, the Bruins handed Hartford its first shutout-against of the season, rolling to a 6-0 victory. Darroll Powe had his first multiple-point game with the Wolf Pack Friday, with a goal and an assist, and Shawn O’Donnell also scored his first career AHL goal in that game.
