TALE OF THE TAPE: DEC. 12


Saturday, Dec. 12, 6:30 p.m. Quicken Loans Arena

It’s rare that any AHL rivalry places so much emphasis on home-ice advantage, but the Chicago Wolves and Lake Erie Monsters have done a great job of winning at home when they meet.

When the Wolves lost 4-3 Friday night at Quicken Loans Arena, it marked their sixth consecutive loss in Cleveland. Conversely, the Wolves have won seven of the team’s last eight games at Allstate Arena.

After reeling off a six-game winning streak from Oct. 25 to Nov. 12, JOHN ANDERSON’s squad hasn’t been able to win back-to-back games. Put another way, the Wolves posted an 8-1-1-1 record (.909) in their first 11 games and a 3-7-0-1 record (.318) in their last 11 games.

With Friday’s loss, this marks the first morning of the regular season where the Wolves haven’t ranked among the top four teams in the Central Division standings.


By The Numbers

+5: After getting outshot in each of their previous five games, the Wolves rallied with a 15-7 margin in the third period Friday night and outshot Lake Erie 35-30 for the game. 

+6: Though Chicago’s record over the last five games is 2-2-0-1, the Wolves have enjoyed a +6 margin in the third period as they’ve outscored opponent 10-4 in the final stanza. As for the first two periods? The Wolves have been outscored 10-9.

9: Right wing DANNY KRISTO had gone nine games without a goal before tallying with 3:03 left to go Friday night. KRISTO owns 6 goals and 3 assists in 10 road games this season.

99: Defenseman PETER HARROLD has doled out five assists in the last two games to push his AHL career total to 99 assists in 205 regular-season games.

Player Spotlight

Hayes

#17 Eriah Hayes – Right Wing

After sitting out a pair of games, right wing ERIAH HAYES returned to the lineup with a vengeance Friday night as he tied the Wolves’ season-high for shots in a game (7) while posting his second goal of the season.

Not only did HAYES tie TY RATTIE for most shots by a Wolves player this season, he tied his second-best professional effort for shots in a game. HAYES fired 10 shots on April 13, 2013, in his third pro appearance while playing for the Worcester Sharks against the Norfolk Admirals.

After missing the first month of the season due to three facial fractures suffered in a preseason scrimmage, HAYES has contributed 2 goals and 1 assist in 11 games.

#27 Daniel Zaar – Right Wing 

 

DANIEL ZAAR didn’t waste any time making his presence felt in Lake Erie’s first matchup of the season against Chicago on Friday night. After KERBY RYCHEL gave the Monsters a 1-0 lead just 37 seconds into the contest, ZAAR doubled the lead, recording his sixth tally of the season.

ZAAR fired a shot from the right circle that zoomed past JORDAN BINNINGTON at 6:41 of the first period.

The 21-year-old posted 11 goals, 30 points and 18 penalty minutes in 80 SHL appearances for Rogle Angelholm and Lulea HF during parts of two seasons from 2012 to 2015
