Patience Pays off for Wolves in Victory over Houston


Spellman, Mike, Daily Herald (Arlington Heights, IL)


Patience was indeed a virtue for the 13,012 fans in attendance Sunday at the Allstate Arena as the Chicago Wolves came from behind to defeat the Houston Aeros 3-2.

The victory got the Wolves back on the winning track after seeing their 12-game winning streak snapped by Kansas City the night before.

The Wolves waited more than 58 minutes to take their first lead Sunday. It came courtesy of Niklas Andersson's slap shot from the point, which snapped out of Houston goalie Tom Askey's glove and trickled over the goal line.

The goal was Andersson's 15th of the season and his fourth in six games.

"I just shot it on net, and I was lucky it went in," Andersson said of his game-winner. "I don't know if he (Houston goalie Tom Askey) scooped it in himself. (He did). There were a lot of people in front of the net."

"New streak: one in a row," said Wolves coach John Anderson. "It was a good game with a couple of weary teams that really battled."

The Wolves outshot the Aeros 16-4 in the opening period, but couldn't do any better than a 1-1 tie. The only scoring either team could muster was a power-play goal apiece - Mark Freer scoring for Houston and Chris Ferarro countering for the Wolves.

It was a different story in the second period as Houston blasted the first dozen shots. Wolves goalie Wendell Young performed acrobatics in turning away the first 11, but the 12th, by Aeros left wing Sandy Moger, was more than Young could handle.

The 6-foot-3 Moger had planted himself in front of the Wolves' net and simply poked in the rebound of a Dave Hymovitz slapper from the point.
