Wolf Pack stun Sound Tigers

Down 3-0 with a minute to go, the Hartford Wolf Pack staged an most improbable comeback, rallying for a 4-3 shootout victory on Saturday night in Shelton, Conn.

With goaltender Jason LaBarbera pulled for an extra attacker, Jozef Balej scored off a pass by Dominic Moore at 19:05. Moore then scored off a rebound with 28 seconds left, and capped the comeback off a scramble with 2.6 seconds remaining.

After a scoreless overtime, Chad Wiseman‘s goal in the seventh shootout round sealed the win for Hartford.

The Wolf Pack finished the preseason at 3-0-0-0, while the Sound Tigers fell to 3-0-0-1.
