Hartford, CT — The Hartford Wolf Pack scored three goals in the third period for a comeback victory against the Albany Devils Saturday at XL Center. Ryan Bourque netted the tying goal with 3:56 remaining in regulation and Hartford scored in three-straight rounds during the shootout for a 4-3 victory.
Albany goes to 24-14-3-4, while Hartford improves to 16-23-0-5.
Sislo, who was returned on loan by New Jersey before the game, and Pesonen opened the scoring at 10:23 and 12:35 of the second period. Haley got the Wolf Pack on the board 1:38 of the third, but Whitney responded at 2:36. The goal pulled Whitney even with Stephen Gionta (2006-13) for first place in franchise history with 58 career goals. Whitney hit the plateau in his 182nd game — 189 games fewer than Gionta.
