With just three games left before the AHL All-Star Break, Chicago takes aim at securing valuable road points starting tonight against Iowa. The Wolves came away victorious in their last trip to Des Moines, notching a 5-3 win on Dec. 8.
Chicago has experienced its share of success on Wild ice, winning seven consecutive games at the Wells Fargo Center and posting an 8-0-1-1 record all-time.
Chicago has claimed three of four games against Iowa this season despite a series of slow starts. The Wolves have been held without a goal in six of 12 periods against the Wild and, on three occasions, have been shut out entering third-period play. On the flip side, the third period has belonged to the Wolves, who own an 8-2 scoring edge.
The Wolves are playing their fourth consecutive road game and will travel to Rockford on Friday. Over the last 10 days, JOHN ANDERSON’s team has traveled 2,534 miles with road swings to Grand Rapids, Charlotte and Iowa.
