recorded a hat trick and an assist and Jason LaBarbera
made 26 saves to lead the Hartford Wolf Pack over the St. John's Maple Leafs, 8-2, tonight at the Hartford Civic Center. Lundmark, making his first appearance of the season with the Wolf Pack after being assigned to Hartford on Monday, tallied in each period of the contest, including a power-play goal with 3:02 left in the first period.
"He's obviously motivated, and there's no other way to be," said Wolf Pack head coach Ryan McGill
. "We saw some really good things. He put himself in really good spots and buried his chances."
"It was a good start and a big thing for me to score," said the 21-year old. "I felt really comfortable coming back, and Rico [Fata] and Ken [Gernander] had great games. I have to have a good attitude and stay positive."
LaBarbera stopped 20 of the final 21 shots he faced to improve to 4-3-2. John Tripp
added a goal, his 11th of the season, and an assist for the Wolf Pack, who won back-to-back games for the first time since October 12. Layne Ulmer
tallied his first AHL goal, while Billy Tibbits
added one of his own, in making his Wolf Pack debut after signing a 25-game tryout contract.
