ABBOTSFORD, British Columbia -- The Chicago Wolves scored 3 power-play goals, but it wasn't enough as the team fell 4-3 in overtime to the Heat before a capacity crowd of 7,044 Friday night at Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre.

Heat defenseman Brian Connelly scored with 12 seconds remaining in OT to snap the Wolves' four-game road winning streak.

Despite the loss, the Wolves picked up a point and have a 5-point advantage over Charlotte for first place in the AHL's Midwest Division.

All-star captain Darren Haydar had a goal and 2 assists for the Wolves (39-25-3-3). Kevin Connauton and right wing Mark Mancari each added a goal and an assist and Byron Bitz scored.

Wolves goaltender Matt Climie (19-9-1) had his three-game winning streak snapped despite stopping 40 shots and earning his fifth assist of the season on the opening score.
