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.
The end of week 13 brought the IceHogs’ only trip into Ontario for the 2012-13 season. In theory, the games should have been on total opposite sides of the spectrum considering the Hamilton Bulldogs sat near the bottom of the Western Conference and the Toronto Marlies sat atop the Western Conference. But, both games had similar outcomes, which weren’t in the Hogs’ favor.
The end of week 21 featured two games in Canada for the IceHogs. They faced North Division leader Toronto and then the Bulldogs, who are battling for their playoff lives, like Rockford.
Two divisional games and the lone home game against Toronto this season were on the IceHogs’ plate in weeks 11 and 12 before they made their way into their four day holiday break. They looked to keep their momentum rolling and give the fans at the BMO Harris Bank Center some victories as early gifts.
