When Chicago welcomes Milwaukee to Allstate Arena tonight, they will play host to one of just two remaining undefeated teams in the league. The Admirals sit atop the league standings with a perfect 4-0-0-0 record and 8 points to start the season, outscoring their opponents 17-8 in the process despite being outshot 117-97.
Rob Bordson gets the sense he has been pigeonholed as a defensive forward. Considering he scored just 33 goals in 259 American Hockey League games prior to joining the Chicago Wolves during the offseason – an average of 9.7 goals per full season – he understands how that could happen.
The Chicago Wolves kicked off their Midwest Division schedule with dominant wins over the Lake Erie Monsters on Friday (4-0) and Saturday (7-2), remaining unbeaten in regulation with a 3-0-1-0 record and 7 points, good for second in the league; the only team with more points than Chicago is its Midwest Division rival and next opponent, the Milwaukee Admirals, who have collected a perfect 4-0-0-0 record to start their season.
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.
