Friday, Nov. 13, 7:00 p.m. MTS Centre
After earning a 5-3 win over Manitoba on Thursday night, the Chicago Wolves can extend their winning streak to seven games tonight at the MTS Centre. And somehow it seems fitting that it could happen on Friday the 13th.
Chicago has been particularly successful on Friday the 13th during its 22-season history. The Wolves own a 14-5-0-1 record on this date and have won eight of their last nine games. Chicago and Manitoba have met once on Friday the 13th — when the Wolves claimed a 4-3 shootout win 17 years ago today in Winnipeg.
The Wolves (8-1-0-1) boast the best record in the Western Conference and are enjoying the second-best start in franchise history. The 2007-08 squad opening 9-0-1-0 en route to a 13-0-1-0 start and the 2008 Calder Cup championship.
