Hartford Wolf Pack 3, Providence Bruins 1

By Matt Morin

Hartford, CT, February 3, 2018 – The Hartford Wolf Pack allowed a season-low 17 shots on goal Saturday night at the XL Center in a 3-1 win over the Providence Bruins, earning a split of a home-and-home series between the two teams.

The Wolf Pack had fallen to the Bruins 2-1 in overtime Friday night in Providence, and were outshot 50-21 by the Bruins in that game.

“We kept the shots down, and that was our emphasis before the game,” said Wolf Pack forward Vinni Lettieri, whose late first-period goal turned out to be the game-winner. “I thought we played a lot better, our puck security was a lot better, too, than the night before. We came out and played as a team, we stuck with it, even when stuff wasn’t going our way, when the puck was in our zone for a little longer than we wanted. We just kept fighting back and just kept shifting the momentum back to our side, and that was a big win for us.”

Hartford, CT, January 19, 2018 – Filip Chytil’s goal at 1:10 of overtime lifted the Hartford Wolf Pack to a 3-2 win over the Utica Comets Friday night at the XL Center, after the Wolf Pack had let a 2-0 third-period lead slip away.

And being able to play a consistent, full-effort game was one that we’ll definitely build off of.”
