Scoresheet

After falling behind by a pair in the opening frame, the Lake Erie Monsters (24-20-2-5) were unable to complete a comeback, falling 3-1 on the road to the Chicago Wolves (24-16-4-2) Saturday evening before 11,112 fans at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois. Paul Carey scored the lone goal for the Monsters.

Michael Davies scored the first goal for Chicago on a wrist shot from the left circle to give Chicago a 1-0 lead, just moments after Chicago's penalty kill unit improved to 3-3 in the first period. Chicago scored first at 15:09 of the opening frame.

Brad Hunt's point shot was tipped by Bill Sweatt in front of the net, sending the puck over the shoulder of Monsters netminder Kent Patterson, to give the Wolves a 2-0 lead on the power play at 16:55 of the first period.

Paul Carey scored the only goal of the second period on a backhand wrap-around - his 12th of the season and ninth in his last 16 games - at 11:19. Brad Malone and Stefan Elliott assisted on the power play goal.

The power play goal from Carey gave the Monsters a power play goal for the second straight night; the Monsters were 1/5 on the man advantage, and 5/6 on the penalty kill... The Monsters current seven-game winless stretch is their longest such stretch in team history.
