The Chicago Wolves host the Lake Erie Monsters tonight and look to continue their run of success against a team they have claimed 19 games from in their 24 all-time meetings. In 12 tilts between the clubs at Allstate Arena, Chicago has prevailed in 11 of them while outscoring Lake Erie 55-32 in the process.
The Chicago Wolves earned three of a possible four points during their weekend doubleheader against Charlotte at Allstate Arena, improving their record in home openers to 13-6-1-1 (.667) and 5-1-1-0 (.786) when opening the season at home; on Friday and Saturday the team will host its newest Midwest Division opponent, the Lake Erie Monsters, who the Wolves went 3-0-1-0 against last season when they were members of the North Division.
The Chicago Wolves launch their 21st season – and 14th as a member of the American Hockey League – at 7 p.m. Saturday at Allstate Arena. After directing the Wolves to the Midwest Division title during his first year in charge since the 2007-08 season, John Anderson feels even more comfortable and confident as the opener beckons.
