It’s tempting for any sports fan to witness a gut-wrenching loss -- such as the Chicago Wolves’ loss to the Utica Comets in two overtimes on Wednesday night – and conclude there’s no way a team can come back.
ROSEMONT, Ill. – Chicago Wolves forward Magnus Paajarvi’s goal with one second left forced overtime, but Utica recovered to earn a 3-2 victory at 3:10 of the second extra period Wednesday night in Game 1 of the Western Conference Quarterfinals at Allstate Arena.
The Chicago Wolves announced Tuesday that forwards Zach Pochiro, Ryan Tesink, Samuel Blais, Jaedon Descheneau, and Chandler Yakimowicz and defensemen Thomas Vannelli and Dmitrii Sergeev have joined the fold ahead of Wednesday’s opening game of the 2015 Calder Cup Playoffs.
It’s no small thing to be tabbed as the Chicago Wolves starting goaltender for Game 1 of the playoffs.
This is not a familiar spot for the Chicago Wolves. Accustomed to winning division titles and earning home-ice advantages, the Wolves find themselves with the Western Conference’s No. 8 seed for the 2015 Calder Cup Playoffs.
