Matchup: The IceHogs are back in action after the AHL All-Star break. Rockford will be facing the Grand Rapids Griffins for a home-and-home weekend series. The Central Division-leading IceHogs will look to offensive powerhouse, Mark McNeill, to lead the team to victory. McNeill is currently in the midst of a team season-high nine-game point streak, which also ties him for the third longest point streak in the AHL this season. Grand Rapids has recently hit a road-block, falling short in seven out of their last ten games after a stretch of 15-straight victories from Nov. 18-Dec. 26.
