Belleville Sens score four unanswered to beat Wolf Pack

April 2, 2022

The Belleville Senators scored four unanswered times en route to a 4-1 victory over the Hartford Wolf Pack at XL Center, on Friday night.

Once again, Belleville battled back from an early deficit after Hartford opened the scoring just 23 seconds into the contest after Maxim Letunov found the back of the net. However, the Senators quickly answered back tallying twice in the frame through defencemen Jonathan Aspirot and Lassi Thomson. Early in the second period, Egor Sokolov extended the Belleville lead to 3-1, blasting home his 16th of the season on the man advantage. The Sens capitalized on the power play yet again in the third period as captain Logan Shaw ended any hope of a Hartford comeback, making it 4-1 with less than six minutes to play regulation.

Head Coach Troy Mann

I thought five-on-five, we did a lot of great things tonight. Getting scored on in the first minute of the game was not something you draw up, but overall our five-on-five game was really good. We faced some adversity early with a couple of penalties not that necessarily they were questionable, but we came out with some good physicality and called a couple of those penalties. The PK was excellent, and special teams really played a role tonight. The power play was 3/5, and the PK was 5/5,  obviously, you’ll take that on any given night, and Gus was very good again.

Playoff Push

Following tonight’s win, the Belleville Sens are back in a playoff spot, sitting 4th in the American Hockey League’s North Division.
