The Wolves will be playing tonight for the first time in a week due to the AHL All-Star break. It'll be a tough game, as they're up against Milwaukee's workhorse goalie Jeremy Smith, who leads the AHL in games and minutes played, shots against and saves, and sports a 2.40 GAA and .919 Save%. Seems the Admirals rely on a great goalie the way their parent team, the Predators, relies on Pekka Rinne.

Hoping to see another great game from some Canucks prospects who have excelled lately, like Joe Cannata and Peter Andersson. It would also be nice to see Kevin Connauton start to heat up and Alex Friesen get his first pro goal.

I'll be watching the first part of this game before the Canucks game starts, for sure!

BTW, some Wolves news:

The Wolves re-assigned center Kenton Miller to the Central Hockey League and signed left wing Devin DiDiomete to a tryout contract.

Cannata for sure getting the start?

Connauton's stock has really dropped.

Is Cannata starting?

Do we have a line-up?

Haven't seen a Wolves game in awhile, if it is on FirstRow I might catch a bit of it till the Nucks/Hawks game starts.

Gotta love Friday's! Besides any Canucks game that happens to land on a Friday, you've got most of the Canucks' prospects in action. There are AHL games on Fridays, college games, major junior games and quite often games in Europe, although this time around our Swedish prospects played yesterday and will play again tomorrow.

Anyway, nothing from Jason Shaver on Twitter yet about lineups or the starting goalie. There isn't even a game preview on the Wolves website, which I find pretty amateur.

Friesen gets his first AHL goal! He got himself into a scoring situation and chipped home a loose puck after Desbiens took the initial shot. Recently signed DiDiomete also picks up an assist on the goal.

1-0 Wolves.

Was busy in another thread and there have been 2 more Wolves goals since, scored by Sweatt and Desbiens.

3-0 Wolves.

So it's what, Freisen, Sweatt, Desbiens, and Davies?

Good to see Freisen with his first, he's been unlucky not to get it until now.

The Admirals will start the 2nd period on a 5 on 3, but good PK'ing by the Wolves at the end of the 1st period regardless.

Wolves on the PP now.

2nd unit is currently on the ice, which consists of Archibald - Kattelus - Davies down low and Matheson-Connauton on the point.

Kattelus scores HIS first AHL goal now! It was the result of a flurry of chances in front of the Milwaukee goalie after a big Connauton slapper.

5-0 Wolves.

Wolves to the PP again. Unfortunately, the Admirals score shorthanded right away. Mark Van Guilder got the goal, I think, from Kevin Henderson.

Two, three more shorthanded chances for the Admirals but Cannata stays strong in net. Sloppy PP for the Wolves, to say the least.

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.

Wolves just finished killing a Desbiens penalty. They're a perfect 4 for 4 so far on the PK. Cannata has been great! He just made a sharp save on a re-directed shot.

I know! With Lack and Honzik also on the depth chart I just love this organization's goalie depth.

Desbiens just wrapped up his Gordie Howe hat trick with a fight to end the 2nd period.

Hopefully Honzik can develop into something, but Cannata's progress is definitely exciting.

Desbien's been much better in 2013 than he was in 2012. I wonder what his New Year's resolution was?

Game over. Final score: 5-2 Wolves.

Shots: 42-33 Admirals

Powerplays: Chicago (2/5), Milwaukee (0/7)

1st period scoring:

CHI Friesen 1 (DiDiomete, Desbiens)
CHI Sweatt 7 (Hunt, Rodin)(PP) 9:49
CHI Desbiens 2 (Schneider) 12:50
CHI Davies 5 (Archibald) 14:26

2nd period scoring:

CHI Kattelus 1 (Archibald, Davies)(PP) 4:41
MIL Van Guilder 9 (Henderson)(SH) 11:06

3rd period scoring:

MIL Reid 1 (Moore, Watson) 7:16

Three Stars: (1) CHI Guillaume Desbiens, (2) CHI Michael Davies, (3) CHI Darren Archibald
________________________________________________________________________

Didn't listen to the 3rd period as I was obviously watching the Canucks game but it appears as if it was a crazy 3rd period. After outshooting Milwaukee through the first 2 periods, Milwaukee then outshot the Wolves 23-6 in the 3rd and Cannata stopped 22 of those 23 shots. He stopped 40 of 42 shots overall. I can't fathom how he wasn't one of the stars tonight. Oh well, this was a great effort by the Wolves. They had their best period of the year in 1st in which they scored 4 of their goals and Cannata was very strong for them the rest of the way.
