Rockford, Ill.- Don’t miss two big games this weekend as the Rockford IceHogs and San Antonio Rampage will drop the puck on Friday and Saturday at the Rockford MetroCentre.

The Hogs are tied for second place in a tight West Division and are looking to put some space between themselves and the Milwaukee Admirals, who are chasing them in the standings.  Just six points separate the top four teams in the division with about 25 games left in the season.

Friday’s action gets underway at 7:05 p.m.  The first 2,500 fans into the building will pick up a baseball cap courtesy of Pepsi, WXRX and WIFR.

On Saturday, the Rampage return for more at 7:05 p.m.  The first 2,500 people at the MetroCentre will get an IceHogs jersey pillow thanks to OSF Saint Anthony and Q98.5.

Tickets are available by calling (815) 968-5222, checking out or stopping by the MetroCentre Box Office.
