Game Story
The Manitoba Moose (14-17-3-2) and Chicago Wolves (23-12-3-2) met to close out the first half of Manitoba’s 2016-17 home schedule.  The hosts opened the scoring 9:08 into the game when Ryan Olsen gathered in and sent home a Peter Stoykewych rebound.  The Moose stayed in front thanks to eight stops from Eric Comrie.  They nearly added to the lead when Scott Kosmachuk cut across into the high-slot and rang a shot off the crossbar with mere seconds left in the frame.

Chicago erased the Moose lead just 25 seconds into middle period.  Wade Megan snared the puck in the faceoff circle before placing a perfect shot into the top corner of the Manitoba net.  The Moose restored their lead five minutes into the period courtesy of a powerplay goal.  Kevin Czuczman sent the puck to the front of the net where Kyle Connor knocked it down and deposited it into the Chicago net.  Again the Wolves evened the score, their second goal coming with 3:18 left in the period.  Morgan Ellis’ point shot found its way through the crowd in front of Eric Comrie and to the back of the net.  The marker left Manitoba and Chicago tied 2-2 after 40 minutes.

The Moose started out the third in dangerous territory, facing an early five-on-three penalty kill.  Manitoba faced 51 seconds of the two-man disadvantage and cleared the second penalty off the board. With 3:19 to go, Bryce Gervais came out of the penalty box, accepted a stretch feed from Morgan Ellis and broke in alone.  Gervais made a move in tight and just squeezed the puck by Comrie and it trickled in off the post to put Chicago ahead.  Kenny Agostino scored an empty netter with 0.6 seconds left to leave the score 4-2 Chicago.

Head Coach Pascal Vincent – “If we play that way, we're going to win hockey games. We were good, we were on the puck we were working hard. Talked to the players about that. That's the foundation of what we want to do. We want to work hard and we're going to teach the mistakes. Obviously we made some mistakes. The foundation was right, the mindset was right."

Goaltender Eric Comrie - "I thought we played a good game. I thought we played solid throughout the whole game. That's what we've got to do to win hockey games. Unfortunately, it didn't go our way."
