Game Day Build-Up: Senators vs Wolf Pack – March 19, 2022

March 19, 2022

Presented by Carpenters Union Local 397

The Set-Up:

A three-in-three weekend continues for the Belleville Sens as they welcome the Hartford Wolf Pack (New York Rangers) to CAA Arena, for the only time this season. The Sens are coming off of a 3-2 overtime win against the Hershey Bears at home on Friday, when Roby Jarventie scored the game winning goal and Mads Sogaard made 36 saves on 38 shots. Jonathan Aspirot and Egor Sokolov also tallied for Belleville last night. The Wolf Pack, meanwhile, have lost four straight games, including a 7-4 defeat in Laval on Friday.

Previous History:

Tonight’s matchup is the second-of-four meetings between the Senators and Wolf Pack, with Belleville earning a 3-2 win in overtime, back on March 2, 2022. Rourke Chartier had a pair of goals in that game, including the OT winner, Michael Del Zotto also scored and Filip Gustavsson earned the win in net. Lifetime against the Wolf Pack, the Senators are 6-1-0-0, with a 2-1-0-0 record at CAA Arena.

Roster Notes:

Troy Mann makes two changes to his lineup after Friday’s win. Defenceman Dillon Heatherington has been recalled back to Ottawa (NHL) and will be replaced by Xavier Bernard, while Logan Flodell will make his second career American Hockey League start in goal. Belleville’s scratches tonight include Chris Wilkie, Cedric Pare, Colby Williams (IR), Kevin Mandolese (IR), Lassi Thomson (IR) and Michael Del Zotto (IR).

Who to Watch:

After netting the game-winner last night, Roby Jarventie is now on a three-game point streak (two goals, one assist), while Sens captain Logan Shaw also has points in his last three games (one goal, two assists). Rourke Chartier has an assist in each of his last two games, with four points in his last five (one goal, three assists), and Scott Sabourin has points in back-to-back games after going pointless in five games since being returned from Ottawa.

Hartford doesn’t have any players on significant point streaks, but Anthony Greco has been their most consistent scorer, putting up 12 points in his last 10 games played (four goals, eight assists). Defenceman Zac Jones does have points in back-to-back games (two goals, one assist), with a goal and an assist in Laval last night, and seven shots on goal in Syracuse on Wednesday. Belleville native Abbott Girduckis is slated to dress for the Wolf Pack, making his fourth appearance of the season. The former Quinte Red Devil, Wellington Duke and Picton Pirate has one goal in three AHL games played so far.
