Today is the regular season finale for the Chicago Wolves on the 2011-2012 season. And the best part is that they get to finish at home. But the mood in the Wolves locker room is a little bitter this afternoon. Yes they clinched a playoff spot, yes they won the Midwest Division championship, but last night they lost to the Milwaukee Admirals in overtime. And that loss has the Wolves a little angry heading into todays game with Peoria. The Wolves hope to finish the regular season with a victory today so they can regain momentum heading into the 2012 AHL playoffs.

On a side note there is some bad news to report. Last night the Chicago Rush suffered their first loss of the 2012 season when they were upset by the Georgia Force by a final score of 70-49. The game was in Gwinett, Georgia where the Rush have struggled for the most part over the last few seasons. Starting Quarterback Russ Michna was eventually benched late in the game for backup Luke Drone. He went 20-36 for 263 yards, with 4 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions. Those interceptions did not help Russ Michna’s case, the Rush defense also struggled. Georgia’s offense got a hot start in the first half. And when combined with the Rush turnovers {4 interceptions 1 fumble}, it made for a bad night for the Rush.

They now come home with a record of 4-1 and they will welcome the Milwaukee Mustangs to the Allstate Arena on Saturday April 21st.

Here is the box score from last night’s Rush game:
