Wausau, WI- The RiverWolves play host to the Milwaukee Power on Friday Night from Marathon Park Ice Arena with the first puck drop coming at 7:30pm. It is the last meeting between the two teams this season. Wausau lost back on October 26th 4-1 and 4-3 on November 24th at Marathon Park.
What to Watch For
Look for Milwaukee forward Chuck Bay to carry the load as the Duluth, Georgia native has recorded a point in all but four games this season. In addition, Bay has the team lead in goals with 31. His 68 points are good for second on the team behind defenseman Jake Berry’s 69. Berry is back with Power after being promoted to the NAHL recently. Don’t be surprised to see Milwaukee in the sin bin early and often. The Power have the not so great honor of having three players who claim a spot in the top eight of the NA3HL’s penalty minutes leaders.
Wausau is trying to break a season long 12-game losing streak. Eight of those 12 games have been played against the 1st or 2nd place team in the Central Division when that game occurred.
All fans are encouraged to bring a new/gently used Teddy Bear(s) to the game Friday and when the RiverWolves score their first goal of the game fans throw their Teddy Bear(s)/stuffed animals onto the ice to benefit kids in North-Central Wisconsin via the Salvation Army of Wausau.
