With no end in sight to the NHL lockout, the Blackhawks are still on stand-by {for now}. As a result, the Chicago Wolves are the only hockey in town.

Tonight the Wolves will try to defend their home ice here at the Allstate Arena against their one of their arch-rivals, the Milwaukee Admirals.

This rivalry is known as the “Amtrak Rivalry” which the Wolves lead this series 24-16-2-2 all-time. That includes a .500 record against the Admirals this season.

This will be the third meeting between these two teams for 2012-2013. Milwaukee won game one back on November 9th by the score of 7-4. The Wolves got payback just last week with a 5-3 victory.

The Wolves will be playing with some anger tonight as they come off of a road loss in Grand Rapids last night. It was a nail biter til the end, with the Griffins pulling off the 4-3 victory.

Chicago’s record currently sits at 8-6-2-0 which puts them in second place in the AHL’s Midwest Division. The Admirals are currently fifth in the same division with a record of 6-8-1-1.

Milwaukee is licking their own wounds as they are 0-2-1-1 in their last four games. It should be a hell of a contest tonight as both teams look to get back into the win column.

The Wolves are looking to keep up their momentum against Milwaukee, while the Admirals are desperate to break their losing streak.
