Iowa Heads North To Manitoba on Tuesday to Meet The Moose
ROSEMONT, IL – Iowa Wild (6-10-0-1, 13 points) were defeated by the Chicago Wolves (6-7-1-1, 14 points) 5-0 on Saturday night in front of 13,478 fans at Allstate Arena. Chicago goalie Pheonix Copley (2-2-0) stopped all 20 shots he faced from Iowa, securing his first shutout of the season. Rookie forward Bryce Gervais led Chicago’s offense with two goals. Wolves’ forwards Andrew Agozzino, Samuel Blais and Wade Megan also scored in the win. Iowa goalie Steve Michalek (4-5-1) stopped 17 of 22 in defeat. Iowa plays next at 7 PM on Tuesday at Manitoba.
Chicago jumped out to a 1-0 lead with a goal merely 80 seconds into the game. Winger Landon Ferraro curled the puck behind the net and swung out to the right side of the Wild goal. Ferarro slipped a pass cross-crease to Wade Megan, who beat Steve Michalek for his fifth goal of the year.
Despite holding Chicago to only two shots on goal, Iowa saw its deficit doubled by the end of the period. The Wild outshot the Wolves 7-2 in the middle frame. Chicago’s Samuel Blais finished off an odd-man rush at 17:34 of the middle period to make it 2-0. Center Alex Freisen sent a cross-ice feed to Blais, who ripped a one-timer past Michalek. Wolves forward Kenny Agostino added an assist on Blais’ second goal of the year.
