Speaking after Monday’s game, Wolves Head Coach Ryan McKelvie said “I thought our guys battled hard today. We got a lot of good quality scoring chances on net. I thought their goaltender played well and so did ours. Like always it was a good, competitive game with Bellingham and we were fortunate to come out on top.”
The Wolves are now 25-1-0-0 in NPHL play, 7 points ahead of second place Bellingham. Next up is a home-and-home series with the Seattle Ravens, Saturday, January 23rd in Kent and Sunday, January 24th in Wenatchee at 2:35pm.
