What to Watch For
Watch for a pair of low scoring games this weekend. Three weeks ago, when these teams faced off just seven goals were scored between the two teams. Look for forward Hayden Shoemake to continue his dominance of Milwaukee. Shoemake had five goals and four assists last season versus the Power including the GWG that clinched a playoff berth.
The Power are led by forward Patrick Toomey. Tommey has five goals and six assists in 12 games.

Wausau is expected to split the series between Mitch Miscevich and Ryan Burke. Miscevich picked up the win in an outstanding performance at the home opener last Friday. He currently has a 3.75 GAA and .882 save percentage. Burke enters the weekend with a 2.47 GAA and .922 save percentage.
The Power are expected to split the weekend between Connor Carroll and Adam Prokop. Carroll sports a 4.29 GAA and .916 save percentage. Prokop enters the weekend with a 3.47 GAA and .913 save percentage.
