Week 25 brought about three games for the IceHogs. To keep in close contention with the rest of the Western Conference for a playoff spot, the Hogs needed to take at least 4 out of 6 points. Could the boys from RockVegas do it? Find out after the jump.
Don’t look now, folks, but the IceHogs have strung some wins together and are smack-dab in the middle of a legitimate push for the playoffs. *Knocks on wood* Week 21 brought two more gargantuan Midwest Division games to the BMO Harris Bank Center in which the Hogs needed all of the points that they could get.
Week 14 brought on three games in four nights for the IceHogs. If that wasn’t tough enough, all of the games were against Midwest Division opponents, two of them being the division leading Griffins.
After the Christmas break, week 12 held two home games for the IceHogs against divisional opponents. The beginning of week 13 also held an important divisional game as the Hogs battled for sole possession of first place.
Week 11 brought about three games for the IceHogs before the Christmas break. Two of them were against their rival to the North, the Milwaukee Admirals, and the other was their first match-up of the year against the Abbotsford Heat.
There were only two games scheduled for the IceHogs in week ten and if they wanted to gain sole possession of first place in the Midwest Division, they had to win both of them. Well, that didn’t go as planned.
Week nine was filled with Midwest Division opponents for the Rockford IceHogs. Fortunately for the IceHogs, two of the games were on home ice. The Hogs also looked to extend their three game winning streak.
Week five featured two big Midwest Division games for the IceHogs with tilts against the Griffins and the Admirals.
The IceHogs’ preseason schedule lasted for less than a week, but packed in three contests all against Midwest Division rivals, which provided for some entertaining games. The Hogs never once had to leave Illinois to play them all, either.
