Hogs fall 3-2 in Rosemont on Sunday

Rosemont, Ill.- A third straight third-period comeback was not meant to be for the Rockford IceHogs on Sunday as they fell 3-2 to the Chicago Wolves at Allstate Arena.

Down by a goal late in the third period, the IceHogs had a power play for the game's final 1:52, but could not solve Wolves netminder Joe Cannata. Rockford trailed 3-2 entering the third period once again on Sunday after winning two games over the weekend when trailing entering the third frame.

Rockford jumped out to a 1-0 lead on Sunday while shorthanded. Dylan Olsen poked a puck to Jeremy Morin and the winger flipped his 22nd goal of the season past Cannatta in transition at 9:06 of the opening stanza.

Two quick strike goals from Michael Davies put the Wolves on top moments later. Davies' first strike came at 12:57 when he was sprung on a breakaway and flipped his 11th tally of the season over Carter Hutton.

The winger struck again less than a minute later as the Wolves hemmed in the Hogs in their own end. Davies picked up a Darren Archibald pass and fired his second goal of the night past Hutton at 13:43.

In the second frame Rockford tied the game at the 2:59 mark. Defenseman Ryan Stanton blasted a Kyle Beach pass over Cannata for his first goal of the season.

Later in the period, Chicago retook the lead with a goal in transition. Steve Pinizzotto found Kevin Connauton trailing the rush and the d-man cranked his fourth goal under the cross bar and in at 16:55, giving the Wolves the ultimate 3-2 edge.

Rockford outshot the Wolves 39-21 and in the three games over the weekend, allowed just 11 third period shots on goal. Both teams were blanked on the man-advantage, with Rockford going 0-4 and the Wolves coming up empty in three attempts.

Next Home Game: Friday, March 15 vs. Chicago Wolves. The puck hits the ice at 7:05 p.m. as the IceHogs and Wolves go at it at the BMO Harris Bank Center in an Illinois Lottery Cup matchup. It's Country Night at the BMO sponsored by Frito Lay and Q98.5, where fans will be treated to live music from Back Country Roads. There will also be a mechanical bull on site for fans to ride and a contest for best-dressed cowboy/cowgirl.
