Outshot But Not Outscored
In Rockford’s 5-4 win against the Wolves last night, they scored the five goals on just 23 shots including three goals on six shots in the second period alone. On the flip side, Rockford goaltender Collin Delia stopped 43 shots to put the IceHogs in a position to win.
Taking Down the Top Dog

However, when they meet the IceHogs, they are 3-4-0-2 with the IceHogs holding six of the Wolves’ setbacks (four regulation losses, two shootout loss) this season, including the Wolves’ most recent loss coming last night in Rockford.
