Haydar's Duece Fails To Clinch Calder Cup

In a powerplay scoring battle the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins edged the Chicago Wolves, three powerplay goals to two.

The pair of Wolves markers, who were significantly behind in powerplay opportunities the majority of the game, came from the stick of their Captain, Darren Haydar, after having fallen behind by that margin.

Unfortunately the game-winner would come on a Jr. Pens' powerplay with Haydar in the box for tripping at just the 2:21 mark of the third period as the puck caromed off of a Wolves' defenseman's skate.

Haydar moved into a first place tie for goals scored in these Calder Cup Playoffs with twelve and a second place tie for points with twenty-seven. Jason Krog remains first in points with thirty-four, picking up an assist on Haydar's first goal of the night for his twenty-fifth helper.

Additionally the AHL Calder Cup Scoring Record continues to climb with Haydar's stats and now stands at fifty-five goals and one hundred and twenty-four points in ninety-three games.

The Wolves will have another chance at closing out their 2008 Calder Cup campaign tonight in the last game of the season slated for the Wilkes-Barre/Scraton Wachovia Arena - should the series continue, it would go back into the Wolves' Den, Chicago's Allstate Arena.

Go Wolves!

Go 'Cats!
