The win improved the Pack's early season record to 2-0. The Wolves were led by the strong play of Joel Vienneau who was fantastic in goal, stopping 30 of the 31 shots he faced.
The first period saw the goalies steal the show as neither team was able to find the back of the net. It did not take long for the Wolves to get on the board in the second as Josh Leivo brought the Wolves fans to their feet with a dazzling end-to-end rush for the go-ahead goal. The goal would hold up to give the Wolves a 1-0 lead heading into the second intermission.
The third period remained scoreless until Nathan Pancel banged home a rebound on the power play to extend the lead 2-0. Just over a minute later Pancel found the back of the net once again as he fired the puck the length of the ice into the gaping net.
The Battalion refused to go away quietly as they finally ended Vienneau's shutout bid when Jamie Lewis beat Vienneau on the short side. Charlie Dodero added to the flurry of late third-period goals as he scored another empty net goal to seal the win for the home team by a margin of 4-1.
The Wolves will now head on the road for a long six-game road trip, starting next Friday when they face-off against the Saginaw Spirit. The Sudbury boys are back in action at home Oct. 12 at 7:35 p.m., when they host the Saginaw Spirit.
