Friday, March 6, 2015 vs. Oklahoma City Barons

Time: 7 p.m. at the BMO Harris Bank Center. Doors open at 6 p.m.

Matchup: The IceHogs take on the Western Conference-leading Barons for the fourth and final time this season as they begin a key home doubleheader. Oklahoma City began the week four points ahead of the third-place IceHogs in the standings as the playoff race in the West  is intensifying. Rockford won the previous matchup with the Barons 3-1 back on Feb. 14 at the BMO, and is 1-1-1-0 through the first three games with the West Division foe this year.

Papa John’s Post-Game Shootout:
Fans are encouraged to stay after the game to take a shot from center ice to win free pizza from Papa John’s.  Even if fans don’t score, they will not leave empty handed, as everyone who participates will win a prize.

Matchup: In a clash of the top teams in the Midwest Division, the IceHogs and Griffins square off to jockey for postseason positioning.  Rockford is 3-1-0-0 against Grand Rapids this season, with their last meeting coming in a shootout victory in Michigan on New Year’s Eve.  Saturday night is the fifth of eight meetings between the two division rivals, with two matchups remaining at each location.
