Tale of the Tape: Jan. 29


Friday, Jan. 29, 7:00 p.m. MetroCentre

Chicago concludes a stretch of five straight road games tonight, renewing its Illinois Lottery Cup Rivalry with Rockford at the MetroCentre. The home-and-home series continues tomorrow night at the Allstate Arena.

The Wolves are winless in their last five appearances at the MetroCentre dating to last season. Home ice has been the determining factor in this year’s series, with the home team winning each time.

In terms of career scoring versus the IceHogs, PAT CANNONE and TY RATTIE have experienced the most success among active Wolves players. CANNONE’s ledger includes 18 points (5G, 13A) in 26 games, while RATTIE has stockpiled 13 points (7G, 6A) in 24 contests.

Chicago has traveled over 2,700 miles since Jan. 17 and fared remarkably well, posting a 3-1-0-0 record with the only loss being by one goal. The Wolves’ recent road success couldn’t come at a better time as the team plays five of six on the road upon return from the AHL All-Star break.

By The Numbers

4: Number of goals the Wolves have scored in the last three minutes of regulation or in overtime during their last four road games. The breakdown: PAT CANNONE (2:29, OT; Jan. 17), CANNONE (0:41, OT; Jan. 26), DANNY KRISTO (19:54, 3rd; Jan. 22), JORDAN CARON (17:21, 3rd; Jan. 26).

98: Career AHL points for JEREMY WELSH, who is two points shy of joining the AHL Century Club.

342: Total penalty minutes between Chicago (46-156 PIMs) and Rockford (57-186) in the season series. The last two games have seen a drop off in physicality, with nine penalties being whistled for each side.

#23 Vince Hinostroza – Center 

The Rockford IceHogs continue to remain hot and forward Vince Hinostroza continues to remain even hotter.

The Bartlett, Ill., native sparked Rockford to its fifth straight win by contributing a goal and an assist in the 3-1 victory over Charlotte on Wednesday. The effort marked his team-best sixth multi-point outing of the season.

Hinostroza, who played just five games for the IceHogs last season and suited up for the University of Notre Dame for two season, has recorded goals in four of his last five contests.

#12 Pat Cannone – Center 

The Wolves forward line of center PAT CANNONE, left wing JORDAN CARON, and right wing DANNY KRISTO is firing on all cylinders, producing 20 points (9G, 11A) over the last three games.

Leading the charge is CANNONE, who has compiled six goals during an eight-game point streak, including a pair of hat tricks over a 10-day span. How dominant has the Wolves captain been? Consider that he has factored in 10 of the team’s 16 goals over the last four games.

In the process, CANNONE has surpassed his goal production of a year ago and matched his Wolves career high of 16 (in 20 fewer games), established three seasons ago. He needs just three more goals to equal his AHL season-best mark of 19, set with Binghamton in 2011-12.

CANNONE enters tonight’s game tied for sixth in AHL scoring with 37 points (16G, 21A) in 39 games.
