It was a tough week offensively for the Wolf Pack (8-8-0-2, 18 pts.), as a pair of road games both ended in shutouts-against. The Albany Devils hung a 3-0 loss on the Pack Wednesday, and then the Springfield Falcons posted a 4-0 win in an I-91 rivalry game on Saturday. Scott Stajcer and Jason Missiaen split the two games in the Hartford net, with Stajcer stopping 22 out of 25 shots in Wednesday’s game and Missiaen making 19 saves on Saturday.
