The Wolves (27-18-1-3) tied the score when Tim Miller’s slap shot hit an opponent’s stick and Michael Davies tapped it home at 14:32.

Mancari scored his first of the night at 16:04 when he sent the puck past Carter Hutton after receiving a backhand pass from Steve Reinprecht.

Rockford tied it up when Shawn Lalonde’s slap shot hit goalie Matt Climie’s right shoulder and slid into the net at 1:02 of the second.

Nathan Longpre gave the Wolves the lead at 5:49 when he received a pass from Davies and drilled a shot top shelf.
