-The IceHogs scored 4+ goals in each of their four games during the team’s four-game win streak from Dec. 1-9, but have since managed just one tally in each contest during their current three-game skid...The IceHogs have fired 103 shots over the last three games while scoring only three total goals.
 
-Opponents have scored the first goal of the game in three straight games following last week’s losses to Chicago and San Antonio...Including those three contests, opponents have now scored first in 16 of 28 total games this season...The IceHogs boast a 10-2-0-0 record in the 12 contests in which they have scored the first goal, but are just 5-9-1-1 when opponents net the opening tally of the game.

-Carl Dahlstrom capped a season-high five-game point streak with an assist during Tuesday’s loss to Chicago...The defenseman tallied 1g-8a-9pts over those five games from Dec. 1-12...Dahlstrom  now enters the week having skated to an even-or-better plus/minus rating in each of the first seven games during the month of December...Dahlstrom leads the team and is ranked tied for fifth in the AHL with a +10 rating thus far this month.
 
-Rockford was held scoreless on the power play in each of its three games last week and has now failed to convert on the man advantage in 15 of the last 19 games...The IceHogs are 4-for-82 (4.9%) on the power play over that span.
