Highlights from Hartford
Follow the progress of the Rangers' top prospects:

The Wolf Pack (26-27-5-5, 62 pts.) battled back from an early 2-0 deficit at Western-Conference-leading Hamilton (Montreal affiliate) on Saturday night, but ended up falling to the Bulldogs in a shootout, 3-2. The Pack now have at least a standings point in four of their last six games (1-2-2-1), but are winless in their last five (0-2-2-1) and have won only once in their last 11 outings (1-7-2-1). Currently standing five points out of a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, the Wolf Pack continued a stretch of five straight road games today (4:00) at Toronto (Maple Leafs affiliate).  They will travel to Worcester (San Jose affiliate) Wednesday (7:05) and Springfield (Edmonton affiliate) Friday (7:30), before returning to the XL Center to host Lowell (New Jersey affiliate) on Saturday (7:00).
