Saturday, Dec. 28, 7 p.m. Bradley Center
The Chicago Wolves didn’t return from their holiday break just the way they entered it. After winning three consecutive home games heading into their four-day respite, the Wolves suffered a 2-1 loss to the Iowa Wild on Saturday night at Allstate Arena.
Saturday’s loss restored the Wolves’ penchant for one-goal verdicts. After playing just six one-goal games during their first 19 contests, seven of the team’s last nine games have been decided by one goal.
Included in that stretch are the last two Amtrak Rivalry clashes between the Wolves and the Admirals. Milwaukee posted a 3-2 shootout win on Dec. 5 at Allstate Arena as well as a 2-1 win on Dec. 15 at the Bradley Center.
Tonight’s game starts a 33-day stretch that finds the Wolves with 10 road games and just four games at Allstate Arena.
