TALE OF THE TAPE: MARCH 6


Sunday, March 6, 3:00 p.m. Allstate Arena

Chicago and Milwaukee complete a home-and-home weekend series this afternoon in Amtrak Rivalry action from Allstate Arena. The Admirals pulled out a 1-0 overtime win last night at the Bradley Center in a goaltending duel between PHEONIX COPLEY and Juuse Saros.

The 0-0 score after regulation play produced the first scoreless game for Chicago and its opponent since April 1, 2014. On that date, the Wolves dropped a 1-0 shootout home loss to Milwaukee

Chicago has earned points in all three home games against Milwaukee, including a 2-1 decision in the last meeting between the teams a week ago Saturday.

JEREMY WELSH and PAT CANNONE lead active Wolves players in scoring against the Admirals. WELSH is averaging nearly a point per game with 14 points (9G, 5A) in 18 games while CANNONE has registered 12 points (5G, 7A) in 27 contests.

By The Numbers

18: PAT CANNONE stands 18th in AHL overall scoring, amassing 44 points (20G, 24A) in 55 games. He needs 4 points to surpass his season-best points total set last year with the Wolves.

21: Third period shots by Milwaukee last night, tying an opponent season high. The Wolves also surrendered 21 shots against Rockford on Feb. 20 (in the opening period).

109: Number of Chicago wins AND home games played against Milwaukee in the all-time series. The Wolves own a lifetime winning percentage of .587 (56-37-5-4-7) versus the Admirals at Allstate Arena.

.750: Chicago’s winning percentage on Sundays this season (7-2-1-0).

Player Spotlight

Admirals

#46 Pontus Aberg – Right Wing

Right wing Pontus Aberg was the overtime hero Saturday night in Milwaukee.

Aberg’s game-winning goal came off a centering pass from Trevor Murphy just 1:29 into the extra session against the Wolves. It was his team-leading 16 goal of the season and s his sixth game winner, which is tied for second in the AHL.

The Sweden native was drafted in the second round of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, 37th overall, by the Nashville Predators.

#31 Pheonix Copley – Goaltender 

PHEONIX COPLEY’s third-period performance last night might have been the best 20 minutes in net for a Wolves goaltender this season. The North Pole, Alaska native turned away all 21 shots he faced, which featured among other things: stopping eight shots in the first 4 minutes of the period, killing off the better part of two penalties, making a save without his stick in hand, and turning way a breakaway attempt.

It was truly a Superman-like effort from COPLEY, but was still shy of the team record for saves in a period, which still belongs to Wolves general manager WENDELL YOUNG, who made 27 saves in the second period against Kansas City on March 24, 1996.

The 24-year-old COPLEY has thrived against the Admirals this season, posting a 1.46 goals-against average and a .951 save percentage in 123:33 of action
