IceHogs and Wild Continue Season Series
The IceHogs and Wild collide for the fourth of 12 meetings tonight and the second showdown of the season at BMO Harris Bank Center. The Wild look to snap a four-game losing streak including dropping the last three in a row to the Central Division leading Chicago Wolves. The IceHogs seek their first victory against the Wild in the season series and currently sit 0-2-1-0 in the head-to-head.

The IceHogs first saw the Wild in a pair of meetings at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines on Oct. 22 and Oct. 23, falling 3-6 and 2-5. In the opening contest, goaltender Arvid Soderblom made a season-high 47 saves. The Hogs hosted the Wild on Nov. 10 at the BMO with the visiting club powering back late in the third period to tie the game and skate away with a 4-3 overtime win.
