WOLF TRACKS

— The Wolves play four of their next five games at the Allstate Arena with their lone road tilt during that stretch at Rockford; the club has posted just a 2-5-0-0 mark at home this season while playing only seven of its first 18 tilts in Rosemont, which is the fewest in the AHL.

— Chicago has earned 10 out of a possible 18 points (nine games) against Midwest Division foes so far this season; the Wolves collected just 31 of 84 points (42 games) against divisional opponents last season.

— Twenty different skaters have lit the lamp in Chicago’s 18 games this season, which includes right wing Cody Beach’s first goal of the season – and third career AHL marker – on Friday.

— The Wolves have been perfect on the penalty kill nine times this season, four of them coming on home ice; Chicago has accrued an 87.1 percent efficiency rating on the penalty kill this season (74 of 85), which ranks fourth in the AHL.

— Chicago has not scored a five-on-three goal since April 7, 2012 and is zero for 24 on five-on-three chances since that goal; the Wolves, who came up empty in 46 seconds of five-on-three time Friday, have cashed in on nine of their 87 man-advantage chances this season (10.3 percent).

YES WE CAN

— The Wolves will be collecting canned goods and non-perishable food items to benefit the Belvidere/Boone County Food Pantry at their final two November home games on Nov. 27 and Nov. 29. For each canned good or non-perishable food item donated, fans will receive one raffle ticket for a chance to win a $50 merchandise credit to chicagowolvesstore.com.
