GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- The Chicago Wolves made a statement Wednesday night.
Following a come-from-behind win Sunday, the Wolves knocked off the Midwest Division-leading Grand Rapids Griffins 4-2 at Van Andel Arena.
Facing one of the American Hockey League's hottest teams, the Wolves (12-10-0-2) received two goals from center Alexandre Bolduc and strong goaltending from Jake Allen to snap Grand Rapids' seven-game winning streak and eight-game home winning streak.
The Wolves trailed 2-1 before Bolduc scored his second of the game at 17:20 of the second period, sliding the puck past goalie Tom McCollum's leg while being tied up by two defenders in the crease.
Wingers Dmitrij Jaskin and Ty Rattie tacked on third-period goals for the Wolves, completing the rally.
Jaskin tapped in a rebound from the front of the net on a power play at 4:24. His wrap-around was finished off by Rattie at 12:16 to ice the win.
Bolduc opened the scoring 10:02 into the game, corralling a rebound and elevating the puck over McCollum's glove.
Grand Rapids (17-5-1-1) bounced back in the second period, scoring two goals to take the lead.
Left winger Jeff Hoggan took advantage of an errant pass to beat Allen glove-side at 11:03. Six minutes later, center Riley Sheahan blasted a shot past Allen on a 5-on-3 power play.
The score sheet was all Wolves the rest of the contest as Allen (10-6-2) stood tall, making 27 saves, including 16 in the second period.
McCollum (7-3-0) made 22 saves.
