Wolf Pack Weekly, November 28-December 4

Nov 28, 2016

The Wolf Pack (6-10-3-0, 15 pts.) reached the quarter-pole of their season this past week, taking three out of a possible six points around the Thanksgiving holiday.  On Thanksgiving Eve Wednesday at the XL Center, the Wolf Pack got a goal and an assist each from defensemen Mat Bodie and Ryan Graves, but fell to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, 4-2.  On “Black Friday” at home, the Pack took a 3-1 lead into the third period against Albany, with Adam Tambellini notching a goal and an assist, but Hartford was victimized by a Devil comeback in what would end as a 4-3 overtime loss.  The Wolf Pack grabbed the lead and held it, though, on Saturday night, as Magnus Hellberg 31 saves at division-leading Lehigh Valley in a 3-1 Pack win.
