Tale of the Tape: Nov. 18


Wednesday, Nov. 18, 7:00 p.m. Bradley Center

Chicago begins a stretch of three games in five days starting tonight in Milwaukee, the team’s first visit to the Bradley Center this season. The Wolves have won three straight in Milwaukee, outscoring the Admirals 18-7 during that time.

Tonight’s contest also closes out five-straight road games for the Wolves, who are 3-0-1 during their road swing. JOHN ANDERSON’s club has recorded points in nine straight games and in all five road contests this season.

Chicago began the 2015-16 Amtrak Rivalry series in fine fashion, posting a 5-1 victory in the season opener on Oct. 10 at Allstate Arena. The Wolves struck four times on the power play, as TY RATTIE (2G, 1A) and ANDRE BENOIT (3A) finished with three-point nights. JORDAN BINNINGTON allowed just one goal — the lone shorthanded tally the Wolves have given up all season.


By The Numbers

15: The number of second-period goals the Wolves have scored this season — their most productive period to date. The Wolves are out-scoring opponents 15-5 during the middle frame. 

19: Number of consecutive days the Wolves have been in first place in the Central Division standings.

+46: Career plus/minus rating for PAT CANNONE in three seasons with the Wolves.

599: Head coach JOHN ANDERSON earned his 750th win as a head coach last week, and tonight he can pick up his 600th win as the Wolves boss (he has 399 while in the AHL and 200 in the IHL).

Today’s game begins at 7:00 p.m. and can be seen on WCIU The U Too. (channel listings can be found here) The game can also be streamed on www.ahllive.com.

#32 Ivan Barbashev – Center

 

First-year center IVAN BARBASHEV is certainly not playing like a rookie. Barbashev has taken to the professional game quickly, averaging a point per game with three goals and eight assists in 11 contests.

The Moscow, Russia, native owns points in eight of 11 games and has moved up to the top forward line, skating besides PAT CANNONE AND DANNY KRISTO.

The 19-year-old BARBASHEV is the youngest player on the Wolves squad, having spent the past three seasons with Moncton (QMJHL), amassing 225 points (88G, 137A) in 173 games.

Admirals

#8 Trevor Murphy – Defenseman

 

The Milwaukee Admirals are a hot team right now having won six straight games and earning points in seven straight, but defenseman Trevor Murphy is even hotter.

The Windsor, Ontario, native recorded a goal in his fourth straight game with a second-period tally Saturday night to lead the Admirals to a 3-1 win over the Charlotte Checkers.

The Nashville Predators signed Murphy, who spent the four past seasons in the Ontario Hockey League, to an entry-level contract in September. Murphy compiled 140 points (42G, 98A) and 296 penalty minutes in 235 games between the Peterborough Petes  and the Windsor Spitfires.
