Wausau WI- On Black Friday, the Wausau RiverWolves travel to Milwaukee to face the Milwaukee Power for the start of a home and home weekend series. Last weekend, Wausau split a two-game series with the Willmar Warhawks winning 4-2 Friday and falling in OT 3-2 Saturday night.
What to Watch For
Look for Milwaukee to spend some time in the sin bin as the Power have three of the top six players in all of the NA3HL in total penalty minutes. Milwaukee Forward Benjamin Beversdorf leads the league with 169 penalty minutes, while averaging almost nine penalty minutes per game. He will be serving a suspension Friday night along with his brother Caleb due to penalty minute accumulation. The Power lead the NA3HL as a team in total penalty minutes (669). In comparison, is not nearly as undisciplined as Milwaukee as the RiverWolves leading penalty getter Cale Bowman averages just over four penalty minutes per game.
