Friday, Oct. 30, 7 p.m. Allstate Arena
Home is where the Chicago Wolves wins are. The Wolves have taken advantage of a heavy home schedule during the first month of the 2015-16 season, claiming six out of a possible eight points at Allstate Arena while outscoring opponents 20-13 for a +7 goal margin.
The Wolves will attempt to secure four more points on home ice against Manitoba this weekend before heading off on a five-game road trip that begins Nov. 6. As a result of the team’s strong start, Chicago stands tied atop the Central Division standings with 7 points and a .700 winning percentage.
The Wolves are getting the job done at both ends of the ice. JOHN ANDERSON’s squad leads the AHL in scoring, averaging 4.60 goals per game, while defensively the team is holding opponents to under 25 shots a good, which is good for fourth best in the league.
