10/21/2010 9:25 AM - The IceHogs return to the friendly confines of the Rockford MetroCentre this weekend for the first two match ups in a three-game home stand this week.
The Abbotsford Heat roll into Rockford Friday for the first time of the 2010-11 season. Puck drop is set for 7:05 p.m. The Hogs look to win their third consecutive game against Abbotsford, after coming off a weekend sweep of the Heat in British Columbia last weekend. The first 1,000 fans into the building will pick up an IceHogs poster courtesy of Comcast, Q98.5 and Medicine Man.
Saturday night sees the IceHogs welcome the West Division rival Chicago Wolves for the first time in 2010-11. Game time is 7:05 p.m.
This is the first of 10 meetings between the two clubs this year. The IceHogs compiled a record of 4-1-0-0 at the MetroCentre against Chicago in 2009-10 and look to dominate the Wolves at home again this season. The first 5,000 fans will receive an IceHogs refrigerator dry erase schedule courtesy of Mygofer.com.
