Climies shutout keys Wolves
CEDAR PARK, Texas — For the second time in a week, Matt Climie earned a shutout to lead the Chicago Wolves to a 2-0 victory Friday night over the Texas Stars at Cedar Park Center.
Defenseman Adam Polasek and forward Darren Archibald lit the lamp in the first period for the Wolves (27-17-4-3) to give Climie all the offensive support he needed as he stopped 33 shots for his fifth shutout of the year — one shy of Wendell Young's single-season record set in 1999-2000.
The Wolves went on the offensive early when Polasek pounced on a loose puck at the top of the circle and rifled a one-timer past Texas goalie Jake Campbell. Polasek's first score of the season came at 4:38.
Archibald followed up with his seventh of the season, picking up the puck at center ice and ripping a wrister that went top-shelf past Campbell at the 11:55 mark.
Trailing 2-0 after 20 minutes, the Stars (33-15-4-4) upped their aggression on the Wolves in the second period, exerting the forecheck but failing to make a dent in the score. Texas kept at it, putting 15 shots on Climie, but to no avail.
