It has been two months between meetings, but things are expected to heat up as Chicago continues its Amtrak Rivalry series with Milwaukee tonight in Milwaukee. The Wolves are looking for their first win in the Bradley Center as they’ve come up short in three visits this season, which includes the last Amtrak Rivalry game on Dec. 28.
The home-and-home weekend series continues Saturday night at the Allstate Arena.
The Admirals have lost 3 of 4 games to fall out of the top spot in the Central Division standings, but remain just percentage points behind Rockford.
