The Chicago Wolves roll into Canada on a hot streak, winning five straight games and looking to maintain their position atop the Central Division standings with a two-game series against the Manitoba Moose starting tonight.
The Wolves swept a two-game set against Manitoba 11 days ago at the Allstate Arena. The Wolves overcame a 1-0 deficit with three goals in the third period to claim the opener, 3-1, on Oct. 30. Two days later, PHEONIX COPLEY stopped all 26 shots he faced in a 2-0 win. Captain PAT CANNONE scored in both games.
The Wolves (7-1-0-1) are off to their second-best start in franchise history. Only the 2007-08 squad started stronger, going 8-0-1-0 and capturing the 2008 Calder Cup Championship.
