Tale of the Tape: Dec. 5


Saturday, Dec. 5, 7 p.m. Allstate Arena

The Wolves wrapped up the first quarter of the regular season with a 3-1 loss Friday night at Grand Rapids. Despite the defeat, the team’s .579 winning percentage stands as Chicago’s second-best start in the last six seasons. Only last year’s 11-5-3-0 record (.658) after 19 games was better.

Chicago keeps catching teams riding a hot streak. Grand Rapids entered last night with a six-game winning streak. Tonight’s Amtrak Rivalry clash finds the Wolves encountering a Milwaukee squad that has won 11 of its last 13 games. The Admirals also come to town not having played since Tuesday.

This is the sixth time this season the Wolves have a game after playing the night before. Chicago posted a 2-2-1-0 record the first five times.

The Wolves have won the last six Amtrak Rivalry games against Milwaukee played at Allstate Arena — a streak that began Nov. 1, 2014.


By The Numbers

1: Friday night’s game marked the first time this season the Wolves lost when leading after the first period. Last season, the Wolves went 19-1-0-0 when leading after 20 minutes. 

2: PHEONIX COPLEY started Friday’s game, which marked the first time this season he received back-to-back starts. The Wolves kept their entire lineup the same after earning an 8-2 win over Manitoba on Wednesday.

14: JORDAN CARON scored in the first period Friday to extend his point streak to three games. He became the 14th Wolves player this season to earn a three-game point streak.

.944: The Wolves snuffed out all six of Grand Rapids’ power-play opportunities Friday night, which means the team has succeeded on 17 of their 18 penalty kills over the last three games.

Right wing Jordan Caron is feeling it.
