The Cincinnati Enquirer

Dan Snyder scored the tying goal with three seconds left in regulation to lift the Chicago Wolves to a 2-2 tie with the Cincinnati Mighty Ducks Saturday in the AHL before 9,611 at the Gardens.

J.P. Vigier scored a second-period goal for the Wolves, who rallied from a 2-0 deficit.

Travis Brigley and Cam Severson scored for the Ducks, who failed to hold a lead entering the third period for the eighth time.

Ilja Bryzgalov stopped 44 shots for Cincinnati, including five in overtime to preserve the tie. Bryzgalov, a second-round pick by Anaheim in 2000, is winless in his last 17 appearances.

Former Cincinnati Cyclone Frederic Cassivi turned aside 25 of the 27 shots he faced for Chicago.

The Wolves went 1-for-4 on the power play, while the Ducks were scoreless in seven man-advantage opportunities.

The Ducks host San Antonio at 4:05 p.m. today in the Gardens.
