Despite being in the final three weeks of the season, the Wolves are seeing an opponent for the first time tonight. Chicago and Toronto have not faced off since the Marlies completed the second-round Calder Cup playoff sweep of the Wolves on May 16, 2014, 10-and-a-half months ago.
Chicago looks to rebound tonight as it hosts Texas for the first time this year. The Wolves were swept at the Cedar Park Center in January and have dropped six straight games to the Stars, four of which have come by a one-goal margin and the other pair by three goals each.
The Chicago Wolves earned an overtime win Wednesday against the Utica Comets and will face the same team tonight to close out the season series. The Wolves are 2-0-0-0 against the Comets all-time in Rosemont and have outscored them 6-3 in those two tilts. But Chicago has not strung together more than two wins in a row at home this year, a streak currently matched thanks to wins Wednesday (UTI) and March 1 (MIL).
The Utica Comets shoot into Rosemont for the first time this season and just the second time since joining the league in 2013-14 for tilts on Wednesday and Saturday. The roster features six former Wolves: Alex Friesen, Nicklas Jensen, Darren Archibald, Alexandre Grenier, John Negrin, and Peter Andersson.
