11/01/2009 4:18 PM - Hogs drop fifth straight game

Rosemont, Ill.-
Special teams are beginning to turn into the Rockford IceHogs Achilles heal.  Rockford coughed up a late goal on Sunday with the Chicago Wolves on the power play and fell 3-1 to the Wolves at the Allstate Arena.

On the advantage, defenseman Chris Chelios blasted his first goal of the season past Joe Fallon from the right circle to break a 1-1 tie at 15:53. The Wolves put the finishing touches on their victory when Arturs Kulda buried an empty-net goal at 19:46.

Rockford failed to score on the power play for the fifth straight game (0-5) and for the second straight night, their penalty kill allowed the game winning marker in the third period. Chicago finished 1-3 on the power play.

Chicago grabbed the early 1-0 lead on Sunday. Joey Crabb ripped home his third goal of the season from between the circles, beating Fallon glove side at 3:43 for the 1-0 lead. Kevin Doell and Riley Holzapfel had the assists.

In the second period Bryan Bickell and the IceHogs would tie it at 1-1. From almost the exact same spot on the ice as Crabb’s marker, Bickell snapped off his third goal of the season at 8:12. Jake Dowell and Bryan Ewing marked assists on the goal.

Fallon played solid in goal for the IceHogs making 22 saves in the loss. Drew MacIntyre made 22 saves as well in picking up the win.

Next Home Game: Wednesday, Nov. 4 vs. San Antonio Rampage. The puck is set to drop at 7:05 p.m. Super Fan Cameron Hughes is back, presented by Rock Valley College, Nicholson Hardware, WXRX, Bob FM and 23 WIFR, to cause a general ruckus. Also if the IceHogs score with 9:10 left on the clock in the third period, one fan in attendance will win $10,000.  It's also a WXRX Student Rush night where high school and college students with a valid ID will get the best available seat for $10 after 6 p.m. at the MetroCentre Box Office.
