Darren Haydar scores 2, adds another in shootout as Chicago beats Abbotsford 4-3

CHICAGO - Darren Haydar scored twice and added another goal in the shootout as the Chicago Wolves beat the Abbotsford Heat 4-3 in American Hockey League action Wednesday.

Bill Sweatt also scored for Chicago (25-16-7), led 3-1 after Haydar scored his second of the night 28 seconds into the third period.

But Abbotsford (26-20-8) rallied on goals in the third by Brett Carson and Krys Kolanos, who tied the game with less than three minutes left in regulation. Mitch Wahl also scored for the Heat, which is winless in five games.

In the shootout, Haydar, Nathan Longpre and Michael Davies each beat Abbotsford goaltender Leland Irving, while only Carter Bancks managed a goal for the Heat.

Wolves goaltender Matt Climie finished with 32 saves, while Irving stopped 35 shots.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
