A quick wrist shot from Rockford right wing Kyle Beach opened the scoring late in the first period. The IceHogs (13-10-0-1) led the game 1-0 heading into the second.

Once the new period got started, Chicago (10-9-2-1) pressed until it found a way to score, with Ebbett finding a hole in Rockford goalie Carter Hutton's game, rifling a shot past him at 4:53.

The score remained tied until midway through the third period when Haydar scored his first goal of the season past Hutton at 7:12.

Hutton (9-9-1) thwarted 34 shots in the loss.

The Wolves return to the Allstate Arena at 7 p.m. Thursday to welcome the Hamilton Bulldogs.
