The Wolf Pack (7-3-0-2, 16 pts.) remain atop the Northeast Division to start the week, despite suffering a shootout loss and a regulation loss in a pair of visits to Springfield this past weekend. Andrew Rowe’s late-second period goal got the Wolf Pack a standings point, and Jason Missiaen made 32 saves, in a 3-2 shootout defeat on Friday night, and Stu Bickel scored his first goal of the season, and Danny Kristo his eighth, on Saturday evening, but the Falcons prevailed again by a 3-2 score. The week began with a 5-3 home win over Bridgeport, with Kristo's goal and two assists, and Conor Allen's goal and an assist, leading the way.
