The Hartford Wolf Pack, the Rangers' American Hockey League affiliate, fell to the Providence Bruins 5-1 in a first-round Calder Cup playoff game on Tuesday night in Providence, R.I., drawing the Atlantic Division semifinal series into a 2-2 tie through its first four games. The Bruins notched the game's first two goals, taking a 2-0 lead before the Pack finally got on the board with Dane Byers' first playoff goal at 9:08 of the middle period. Byers was assisted on the play by Brandon Dubinsky and Greg Moore, but the Pack could get no closer. Providence scored again late in the second to make it 3-1 and added a pair of goals in the final period. The Bruins outshot the Pack 25-24, as Hartford goaltender Al Montoya stopped 20 shots in defeat. Hartford returns to action for Game 5 on Thursday night in Providence. Hartford still has home ice advantage in the series, since Games 6 and 7 would both be played at the Hartford Civic Center on Saturday and Sunday.
