-The Rockford IceHogs produced a season-high five-game winning and eight-game point streak from Feb. 3-17. The Hogs snapped both streaks in the final game of the most recent homestand with a 2-0 loss to the Charlotte Checkers (Feb. 18).
-Rockford concluded last week's homestand with a 4-1-0-0 record and eight of 10 possible points. The lone loss during that stretch was the Hogs' first home shutout in exactly two years to date, via a 2-0 blanking on Feb. 18 vs. Charlotte (most recent home shutout was 4-0 loss to San Antonio on Feb. 18, 2015).
-Jeremy Langlois led all IceHogs skaters with three points (2g, 1a) and a +3 plus/minus rating over three games last week. Langlois has now notched seven (6g, 1a) of his season's 10 points over the last 11 games since Jan. 27.
-The IceHogs have allowed two or fewer goals in six of the last seven games, beginning Feb. 7. Opponents have scored a combined 11 total goals in that span for an average of just 1.6 goals per game.
-The Hogs have allowed just two power-play goals over the last eight games dating to Feb. 4. Rockford enters the week having successfully killed off 22 of the last 24 power plays (91.7%) over those eight games.
-Jeff Glass posted his second shutout in nine games with the IceHogs during Rockford's 2-0 win vs. Cleveland on Feb. 15. Glass has allowed two or fewer goals in each of his last four starts, combining to go 3-1-0-0 with a 1.01 GAA and .970 SV% over that stretch.
