Matt Climie's shutout sparks Wolves
CLEVELAND — The Chicago Wolves opened a three-game road trip with a 1-0 win over Lake Erie Saturday night at Quicken Loans Arena, moving into a first-place tie in the AHL's Midwest Division.
The Wolves allowed a season-low 19 shots as goaltender Matt Climie (17-9-0) posted his first shutout of the season, snapping the team's two-game losing streak. The Wolves (34-24-2-3) are tied for the division lead with Peoria at 73 points.
In his first start in six games, Climie stopped 8 shots in the final period. The Leduc, Alberta, native has posted a 2.25 goals-against average and .923 save percentage in 12 games (8-4-0) in 2012.
Following a scoreless first period, Wolves scored the lone goal of the game short-handed midway through the second period. Tim Miller intercepted a pass at the Wolves blueline and streaked down the ice on a 2-on-1 with Steven Reinprecht, who caught a pass and snuck a backhander past Monsters goaltender Cedrick Desjardins (12-8-2) for his third short-handed goal of the season.
The Wolves' road trip continues when they play the Toronto Marlies today at 2 p.m.
