Canucks vs. Wranglers Game 1: Wranglers Take the Win in Overtime

NHL.com

The AHL Pacific Division second round series between the Calgary Wranglers and the Abbotsford Canucks kicked off with a thrilling Game One. It was a tightly contested battle that ultimately saw the Wranglers take the win in overtime with a 3-2 victory over the Canucks.

A Tight Game

The Canucks scored on themselves to kick off the scoring, with Dryden Hunt getting credit for the goal. After twenty minutes, the game was 1-0 for the Wranglers, and that is about as eventful as the second period was for the scoreboard. There were many fights and scrums after whistles, and the Refs and Linesmen were getting a good workout in breaking them up.

The Canucks managed to tie the game up in the third period with a goal from Marc Gatcomb. His first of the offseason shortly before Adam Klapka put the Wranglers back in the lead with a beautiful out-of-the-air shot. While the Wranglers were hoping to close out the first game on home ice, Aatu Raty skated into the middle of his offensive ice and sniped over the shoulder of All-star goalie Dustin Wolf. This is how we ended regulation tied at two.

The overtime period was intense, with both teams trading chances before Pelletier scored the game-winner.

A Heroic Overtime Goal

The Wranglers’ Jakob Pelletier was the hero of the game, scoring the game-winning goal in overtime. Pelletier’s goal came just over halfway into the extra period when he snapped a shot from the right-wing circle that beat Canucks goaltender Spencer Martin. The goal was a fitting end to a game that saw both teams battle hard from start to finish.

Wranglers’ Quest for the Calder Cup

The win in Game 1 was a crucial one for the Wranglers as they look to make a deep run in the AHL playoffs and compete for the Calder Cup. The team finished the regular season as the Pacific Division champions and will be looking to build on that success in the playoffs. With the win in Game One, the Wranglers have taken the first step towards achieving that goal.

Game two is Friday at 7:00 PM MT at the Scotiabank Saddledome. You can watch it live on AHL TV!
