Larose, Wolves provide big win at Iowa

Cory Larose and Darren Haydar combined for nine points as the Wolves upended the Stars by a score of 7-3 at Wells Fargo Arena on Tuesday night.

Larose picked up five points, including a second-period hat trick, and Haydar assisted on all four Chicago goals in the middle frame.

Haydar took over the AHL scoring lead from teammate Jason Krog, who was recalled by the parent Atlanta Thrashers earlier Tuesday. Haydar increased his total to 54 points (18g, 36a) on the year and extended his scoring streak to 27 games, registering a point in every game this season.

Brett Sterling, who leads all rookies in scoring with 40 points (23g, 17a), added to his totals by scoring a pair of goals on the night. Sterling now has eight multi-goal games and 13 multiple-point tilts on the year. Colin Stuart and Jimmy Sharrow also scored, Nathan Oystrick had three assists and five different players recorded a plus/minus rating of plus-3 or better for the Wolves, who have won 12 of 15 on the road this season.

Goaltender Fred Brathwaite stopped 28 of 31 shots for Chicago to pick up his seventh consecutive win.

Marius Holtet led the Stars with a goal and an assist for Iowa, which has lost five in a row.
