Tale of the Tape: Nov. 28 2015

Saturday, Nov. 28, 7 p.m. Allstate Arena

Three weeks after playing a pair of terrific games at AT&T Center, the Chicago Wolves and San Antonio Rampage get together at Allstate Arena to play the other half of their four-game series.

The Wolves defeated the Rampage 4-3 in overtime on Nov. 6 and 8 in San Antonio — and both games were decided by DANNY KRISTO game-winners.

Since these teams met in Texas, they have cooled off from their terrific starts. The Rampage are winless in their last four starts, though two of those losses came in overtime. The Wolves have gone 2-3-1-0 in their last six games.

San Antonio enters tonight with two days’ rest while Chicago played last night in Rockford. The Wolves suffered a 3-1 defeat as they were assessed 72 penalty minutes after being whistled for just 139 penalty minutes in their first 14 games (a league-leading 9.9 minutes per game).

By The Numbers

139: The number of penalty minutes the Wolves were assessed during their 14 games through Thanksgiving. 

72: The number of penalty minutes the Wolves were assessed during Friday’s game at Rockford. Their previous season-high was 19 minutes on Nov. 1 vs. Manitoba.

7: The number of penalty minutes Cody Beach received on Nov. 1 vs Manitoba, which was the Wolves’ individual high prior to Friday’s game.

4: The number of Wolves players who received at least 10 penalty minutes in Friday’s game as the team racked up four fighting majors and four 10-minute misconduct penalties.
