The Eastern Conference and AHL leading Hartford Wolf Pack ran their record to 3-0-1 after last night's come from behind, road victory against the Adirondack Phantoms.
JT Miller opened the scoring for Hartford, accepting a feed from Marek Hrivik behind the net for his 4th goal in three games, good for second in the AHL. The Phantoms got two quick goals towards the end of the first to take a 2-1 lead into the break.
The Wolf Pack quickly tied the game in the second with a soft wrister from the point by Tommy Hughes that found its way past Phantoms goalie Cal Heeter.
Unfortunately, the livestream that I'm provided cut out with 15 minutes remaining in the second, although there was only one more goal in the entire game and that was Brodie Dupont's with 2:07 remaining in the third.
WOW... Tommy Hughes from another city and somehow with the traffic it gets through and into the net... 3-2 #WolfPack with 2:07 left— Mitchell R. Beck (@HowlingsToday) October 13, 2013
They give the goal to Brodie Dupont on the deflection. helpers to @Andyogs and Hughes. !;!2 to go— Mitchell R. Beck (@HowlingsToday) October 13, 2013
Couple other observations:
Kreider gets a penalty on a bad call for slashing and a ten minute misconduct for getting on the Ref. Time is 18:05. #Phantom PP— Mitchell R. Beck (@HowlingsToday) October 13, 2013
Oh yeah, and Dylan McIlrath did this:
The Wolf Pack's next game will be on Friday, October 18 at home against the Manchester Monarchs.

Let's go Rangers.
@TheNYRBlog is Gernander still coaching them?
@TheNYRBlog wow that's impressive then I know he liked a more defensive team before this too right
@TheNYRBlog @joshkhalfin Probably for the same reason Mess didn't get the job. Slats playing it safe. People who play it safe usually lose
@TheNYRBlog exactly and he knows what he's doing I personally like him I've seen one of their games & that's exactly how I want them to play
@joshkhalfin Was surprised he wasn't given a look for NYR head coach vacancy. He's a good coach who knows the organization.
