Tale of the Tape: Nov. 29 2015

Sunday, Nov. 29, 3 p.m. Allstate Arena

When the Chicago Wolves visited the San Antonio Rampage three weeks ago, the Rampage took early leads in both games only to watch the Wolves rally late and claim 4-3 overtime victories on Nov. 6 and 8.

When the Rampage visited the Wolves Saturday night at Allstate Arena, Chicago started with a huge flurry of shots that culminated in a JACOB DOTY goal 5:12 into the night that gave the hosts a 1-0 lead. San Antonio scored later in the period to knot the game, then reeled off three consecutive scores in the third period to grab a 4-1 victory.

The Wolves are in the midst of a scoring drought. After scoring at least two goals in each of their first 12 games, the team has scored a combined 5 goals in the last four games.

Wolves head coach JOHN ANDERSON talking Saturday night about his team’s recent scoring issues: “I liked our lineup tonight. I thought we played well. Good enough to win, but also good enough to lose. We’ve got to make a definite statement tomorrow. The guys who aren’t scoring are going to have to figure out ways to do it. Get to the net. Put more shots on net. Whatever it takes.”


By The Numbers

4: The Wolves have four “three-in-three” weekends this season where they play three games in a 48-hour stretch. Today’s game marks the end of their first three-in-three. Last season the Wolves played six three-in-threes and averaged 3.83 points per three-game set. 

7: It has been seven seasons since the Wolves played a three-in-three and came away without a point. The last time it happened was March 6-8, 2009.

15: The Wolves have been unable to cash in on their last 15 power-play opportunities. Their most recent power-play strike occurred at 19:20 of the second period Nov. 18 at Milwaukee.
