Tale of the Tape: Nov. 8


Fans last season had a good chance to catch some extra hockey if the Wolves and Wild were playing — of the 10 games between the teams in 2013-14, six of them went beyond regulation (two to overtime, four to the shootout).

Storylines

  • Fans last season had a good chance to catch some extra hockey if the Wolves and Wild were playing — of the 10 games between the teams in 2013-14, six of them went beyond regulation (two to overtime, four to the shootout); Chicago and Iowa split their extra-session decisions, each garnering the extra point in three games, with the home team claiming the victory four out of the six times.

  • The Wolves have played past the buzzer three times this season, collecting a 1-2 record in overtime and not seeing any shootout action yet this year thanks to revamped overtime rules.

  • The Wolves faced off against the Wild 10 times last season, Iowa’s first in the league, and went undefeated in regulation in Wells Fargo Arena; a former Midwest Division rival, Iowa was moved to the West Division in the league’s realignment in the 2014 offseason.

  • Tonight the Wolves play game three of their franchise-record-tying nine-game road trip, a trek made each November when the circus takes over Allstate Arena; Chicago evened up both its road record (2-2-0-0) and circus trip record (1-1-0-0) with a 3-1 win Wednesday morning in Grand Rapids, moving into a tie for second in the Midwest Division.


By The Numbers

10 – Difference between the average shots allowed by the Wolves at home (18.5 over six games) versus on the road (28.5 over four games); while the difference in shots for at home and on the road is negligible (0.2), the stark gap in shots allowed puts the team’s overall shot differential at home (12.2) 10.2 higher than on the road (2.0).

-2 – Difference between the average goals against at home (1.50 over six games) and on the road (3.50 over four games) for the Wolves this season; Chicago’s combined goaltending save percentage is .034 lower on the road (.885) than it is at Allstate Arena (.919).

8 – Games since the Wolves have played an opponent outside their division, dating back to Oct. 11-12 against Charlotte; starting with this doubleheader in Iowa (a 2013-14 Midwest Division member), Chicago will play its next six tilts against West and North Division foes.

Player Spotlight

37 TerryBroadhurst

#37 Terry Broadhurst
Forward

With what seems like a different leading scorer every game, the Chicago Wolves aren’t having any drop off when John Anderson is mixing in players on different lines. Terry Broadhurst is a perfect example of that.

After cracking the lineup in the first weekend of the season, Broadhurst was given back-to-back games off before roaring back to tally five points in six games. He’s also currently on a four-game point streak and two-game goal streak to start the road trip. 

After recording 44 points with Rockford last season, the Wolves are thrilled to have an additional scorer up front who is already making an impact. Broadhurst will look to keep his streak alive against the most goal-generous team Chicago will have played thus far. 

Jordan Schroeder

#10 Jordan Schroeder
Center

The former Chicago Wolves center will face off against his old team for the first time since he departed following the 2012-13 season. In two seasons wearing the burgundy and gold, Schroeder recorded 33 goals and 44 assists in 118 games.  

His 2013-14 season with Utica and Vancouver (NHL) was injury prone and saw just 25 games with the Canucks and two with the Comets. He’s making up for his lost time, starting the season with 11 points in 10 games. Schroeder exploded for five assists in the Wild’s first three games but has since slowed down over his recent three games played.  

The Wolves will only help themselves by keeping Schroeder from finding the back of the net to leave Wells Fargo Arena with yet another win on this nine-game road trip.
