The first game of the NESHL season for the CT Wolf Pack was more like a hockey clinic taught by the NY Rangers. Crisp passes, hard accurate shots, communication, and cycling were all in the “demonstration” by the Rangers in Friday nights game. The pack seemed to have a bit of “Rink Rust” going in. Their practice season had only started two weeks before and it showed.
The Pack was only able to accumulate 2 shots on goal the entire game. Both shots coming from CT star center Ryan Pelletier who was also the single goal scorer for the Pack. Shots on goal were not CT’s only problem. They had a light bench going into the weekend and were missing 2 wingers and 2 defensemen. That coupled with the lack of practice the Pack was just not able to defend the blistering 8 goals out of 16 shots by NY. Rangers goals were scored by Danny Santos (4), Nick Teodoro (2), Josh Pauls (1), and Mike Szymczak (1)
