Chicago looks to take a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference Finals when it hosts Toronto this afternoon at Allstate Arena… The Wolves captured a 4-1 victory in Game 1 on Friday night, moving to 7-0 this postseason when they score the game’s first goal… Jason Krog netted a hat trick and added an assist to factor into all four goals for Chicago… Krog has notched seven goals in his last four games after failing to score in his first 10 postseason contests, and he leads the AHL with 21 playoff points overall (7-14-21)… Darren Haydar notched the 50th goal of his Calder Cup Playoff career in the Game 1 victory and also chipped in a helper, extending his scoring streak to four games (1-5-6)… Haydar’s 50 postseason goals are one shy of the all-time record held by AHL Hall of Famer Jody Gage (see below)… Rookie goaltender Ondrej Pavelec stopped 26 of 27 shots in net on Friday to run his playoff record to 9-5… Pavelec ranks first among active goaltenders in both GAA (2.19) and save percentage (.928)… The Wolves’ top-ranked postseason power play (21.2 percent) went 1-for-8 in the series opener… Patrick Wellar netted his first career Calder Cup Playoff goal for the Marlies, potting the team’s only marker on the night… Alex Foster picked up an assist on the goal, giving him three helpers in his last two outings… Kris Newbury (4-8-12) and David Ling (3-9-12) remain tied for the Marlies’ playoff scoring lead with 12 points apiece… Toronto is 0-2 in Game 2’s this postseason, having dropped home-ice contests to San Antonio and Syracuse in the first two rounds.
