TORONTO -- The Chicago Wolves rebounded from Tuesday night's loss with a hard-fought 2-1 victory over the Toronto Marlies on Saturday afternoon at Ricoh Coliseum.

Left wings Dmitrij Jaskin and Chris Porter got on the board for Chicago, and defenseman Brent Regner dished out 2 assists. Goaltender Jake Allen backstopped the victory, with the only blemish coming on one of Toronto's seven power plays.

The Wolves (22-15-2-2) took the early lead with a goal 10:11 into the first period. Defenseman Evan Oberg sent a breakout pass up ice in transition, finding the stick of Jaskin. The rookie rifled a slap shot past Toronto goaltender Garet Sparks glove-side to put Chicago up 1-0.

The visitors would not make it out of the opening period with the lead as the Marlies (24-13-2-2) capitalized on a two-man advantage at 18:11. Three seconds into a 5-on-3 power play, center Greg McKegg won a faceoff and sent the puck back to defenseman T.J. Brennan. Brennan blasted a shot low and glove-side to beat Allen.

A power-play goal at 10:42 allowed the Wolves to regain the lead in the second period. Defenseman Brent Regner faked a shot and sent a pass across the blue line to Chorney, who one-timed it on net. Porter, alone in front of the goal, redirected the puck low, evading Sparks' glove.

Both Allen (17-10-2) and Sparks (3-5-0) finished the night with 28 saves.

The Wolves continue their five-game road swing at 3 p.m. Sunday in Hamilton at Copps Coliseum.
