ROSEMONT, Ill. — The Chicago Wolves were topped 2-1 in overtime Sunday afternoon, but earned three of a possible four points against Charlotte on opening weekend at Allstate Arena.

Defenseman Petteri Lindbohm scored the lone goal for the Wolves (1-0-1-0) while goaltender Jordan Binnington (0-1-0) stopped 14 shots through regulation and overtime. The Wolves settled for one point despite outshooting Charlotte 43-16.

“Throughout the game, we’re sticking to what we want to do,” said Wolves head coach John Anderson. “I thought we controlled the game for most of it. I think if we play that way throughout the year, we’re going to win a lot more than we lose.”

For the second night in a row, the Wolves opened scoring, this time at 6:53 in the second period. Ty Rattie fired a shot on goal that tripped up Checkers goaltender Drew MacIntyre and bounced out to the slot. Lindbohm pinched in and buried the rebound top-shelf over the sprawled netminder for his first professional goal in North America.

Charlotte (1-2-0-0) answered at 15:16 of the middle frame, taking advantage of a five-minute power play to even the score 1-1 after Wolves right wing Cody Beach was ejected for charging. Kevin Lowe connected on a passing play with right wing Alex Aleardi, who stuffed a loose puck past Binnington in the crease.

While Chicago controlled most of the third period, outshooting Charlotte 18-3 in the frame, they were unable to beat MacIntyre (1-1-0), who finished the night with 42 saves to earn the win.

Center Ben Holmstrom finished it 1:32 into the extra session, crashing the crease and rebounding Rasmus Rissanen’s shot from the corner to beat Binnington over his glove-side shoulder.

The Wolves continue their season-opening five-game home stand next weekend as they host Lake Erie for 7 p.m. games on Friday and Saturday. To learn more about ticket specials, call 1-800-THE-WOLVES or visit ChicagoWolves.com.
