Rosemont, Ill. – The Rockford IceHogs suffered a 3-2 overtime loss against the Chicago Wolves on Saturday night for their seventh straight loss. Forwards Bobby Lynch and Carson Gicewicz both tallied their third goals of the season.

Rockford struck first for the first time since January 3 and took a 1-0 lead late in the first period as Lynch caught a low-to-high pass from defenseman Jakub Galvas and rocketed a wrister underneath Chicago netminder Pyotr Kochetkov from just in front of the blue line at 17:45.

The IceHogs went a perfect 3-3 on the penalty kill in the first frame, and goaltender Arvid Soderblom stopped all 12 of Chicago’s shots, saving several scoring opportunities in the crease on the Wolves’ three power play chances.

Scoring the only goal of the second stanza, Chicago defenseman Ronan Seeley fired a one-timer from the slot past Soderblom at 9:05 on the Wolves’ fourth power play of the night to even the score at 1-1.

Taking back a 2-1 lead, the IceHogs scored early to start the final frame. Gicewicz intercepted the puck on the Wolves’ attempt to clear the zone from behind the goal line and sniped a wrister from the slot behind Kochetkov at 2:52.

Chicago cleared their defensive zone on a rebound from a shot from IceHogs forward Lukas Reichel as the Hogs’ second power play ended. Forward Logan Lambdin jumped out of the penalty box to catch the loose puck and fire a breakaway shot past the blocker of Soderblom at 5:13, tying the contest 2-2.

With 52 seconds left in the overtime period, defenseman Max Lajoie caught a backhanded pass from Jamieson Rees and fired a shot from the left circle. Soderblom knocked down the shot, but the puck inched behind the Rockford goalie, sealing the Wolves’ 3-2 overtime win.

Soderblom was stout in the net and ended the contest with 29 saves on 32 Chicago shots. Kochetkov earned the win for the Wolves with 17 saves on 19 Rockford shots.
