Wednesday, Dec. 2, 7 p.m. Allstate Arena
The Chicago Wolves look to snap a three-game losing streak as the Manitoba Moose visit the Allstate Arena for the third time in 2015-16. The Wolves will be playing their fifth game against Manitoba, the most against any opponent up to this point in the season.
The Wolves’ offense has been puttering of late, producing just three goals in its last three games. Chicago is averaging 3.06 goals per game this season, yet hasn’t reached the three-goal mark in its last five outings.
The Wolves’ fortunes have changed dramatically since defeating the Moose, 5-3, on Nov. 12. That victory extended the team’s win streak to six games and marked the 10th time in 11 contests the team earned points. Since then, Chicago has gone 1-5-10, earned points in one of six games, and averaged 1.5 goals per game.
JOHN ANDERSON’s club is 6-4-0-0 at home this year, and will attempt to stockpile points on home ice while it can. After tonight, the Wolves are on the road for five of their next six games, the lone home game taking place Saturday against Milwaukee.
By The Numbers
9: Captain PAT CANNONE leads all Wolves in home scoring with nine points (4G, 5A) in nine games.
16: The age difference (16 days) between defensive partners PETTERI LINDBOHM and JORDAN SCHMALTZ, both born in 1993.
32: Number of career wins JORDAN BINNINGTON owns in a Wolves uniform, ranking 10-best all-time. BINNINGTON is two wins behind JAKE ALLEN (2013-14) for ninth place.
