TALE OF THE TAPE: FEB. 6


Saturday, Feb. 6, 7:00 p.m. Allstate Arena

The Chicago Wolves waited nearly 12 minutes to fire their first shot on goal Friday night at Iowa, but they finished strong with a pair of third-period goals that lifted the visitors to a 2-1 triumph in the team’s first game after the four-day All-Star Break.

Goaltender JORDAN BINNINGTON enjoyed one of his finest efforts of the year as he set a Wolves season-high with 39 saves while right wings DANNY KRISTO and ERIAH HAYES notched the tying and game-winning goals, respectively.

Friday’s effort gives the Wolves five wins in their last seven games, which is the team’s best stretch since starting the season as one of the hottest teams in professional hockey with an 8-1-0-1 record. Perhaps more relevant — because the second half promises to be a series of tight games — all five Wolves wins during this run have been by 1 goal.

The Wolves snuffed out all five Iowa power-play opportunities Friday night, which snapped a streak of five consecutive games when Chicago allowed at least one power-play goal.

By The Numbers

11: Third-period goals for the Wolves against the Wild this season, which accounts for 65 percent of the team’s production. To put those 11 goals in perspective, the Wolves have scored five goals in the first and second periods combined.

9: Friday’s contest was the first time in nine Wolves games there wasn’t a power-play goal by either team. The previous time was Jan. 15 vs. Iowa.

2: The Wolves have won five games when trailing after 40 minutes. Two of those wins have come against Iowa — and the Wolves also trailed 3-2 in the third period on Jan. 26 at Iowa before rallying to win.

+12: The Wolves are outscoring foes 57-45 after the second period.

#10 Jordan Schroeder – Center  

The Iowa Wild might be struggling this season, but forward Jordan Schroeder is not.

The 25-year-old Minnesota native is tied for first on the team with 27 points. He has points in six straight games, totaling two goals and nine assists over that span. That ties the franchise record for consecutive games with at least one point.

After signing a two-year contract with Minnesota in 2014, Schroeder started last season in Iowa but finished the back half in Minnesota. He was among Iowa’s team leaders in scoring at the time of his recall

The 22-year-old Mitchell was signed as a free agent by the Wild in March and recorded 35 points in 76 games with the Iowa Wild last season, which was good enough for second on the team in goals and fourth overall in points. He led all Iowa rookies in points and set new team rookie records for goals, assists and points in a season.

Hayes

#17 Eriah Hayes – Right Wing  

Right wing ERIAH HAYES recorded his first game-winning goal of the season on Friday.

He accepted a YANNICK VEILLEUX pass below the goal line, skated toward the net and banked a bankhand off Iowa goaltender Jeremy Smith to put the Wolves ahead 2-1 with 3:40 to play.

The La Crescent, Minn., native carries a two-game point streak into tonight’s contest as HAYES handed out an assist in the Wolves’ final game before the All- Star Break. He owns 6 goals and 5 assists in 33 games this year — and half of his goals have come against the Iowa Wild.
