Game Story
The Manitoba Moose (39-30-5-2) finished the regular season with a dominant 6-2 win over the Chicago Wolves (44-22-6-4) at Allstate Arena on Sunday afternoon.  The Moose opened the scoring 7:53 into the game as Jonathan Kovacevic’s centering feed bounced into the goal off a Chicago defender.  Manitoba added to the lead on another friendly bounce as Michael Spacek was the beneficiary of a giveaway in front of the Wolves’ net and potted his 10th of the season at 10:22.  Chicago got on the board 1:20 after Spacek’s tally as Stefan Matteau redirected a Zach Whitecloud shot past Eric Comrie to leave the score 2-1 in favour of Manitoba after 20 minutes.

Neither team was able to find the back of the net in the middle frame.  The Moose outshot the Wolves 13-4 in the period, but Max Lagace was equal to the task guarding the Chicago net.  The scoreless period pushed the Moose into the third with a 2-1 advantage.

The floodgates opened midway through the third as the Moose scored four goals in a span of 5:17.  Logan Shaw got it started at 6:42 of the period by scoring on a nice pass from Marko Dano on the power play.  Kamerin Nault made it 4-1 a minute later, scoring on a partial break down the wing.  Less than two minutes after that, Jansen Harkins sniped after an offensive zone faceoff win for a 5-1 advantage.  Cole Maier rounded out the run with eight minutes to go, shoveling the puck up and over Lagace during a scramble in the Chicago crease.  Former Moose Tye McGinn added one more for Chicago with six minutes to go in the contest, finishing off a pass from below the goal-line to leave the final score at 6-2 in favour of the Moose.
