"Different night, same story," said Wolves coach John Anderson. "We are just not scoring. And until we do start scoring consistently, the outcomes aren't going to change."
Wolves goalie Jake Allen made 18 saves.
The Wolves' persistence finally paid off at 4:27 of the third period when Andronov redirected Cade Fairchild's blast from the left point, with Tyler Shattock earning an assist.
The Wolves took a 2-1 lead on Cannone's goal at 7:59. Shattock flipped the puck from along the right boards toward goaltender Ty Rimmer (39 saves), who directed the rebound toward the left circle. Cannone anticipated the carom and punched his shot from the faceoff dot over Rimmer's glove.
The Wolves host Oklahoma City today at 3 p.m.
