ROCHESTER, N.Y. --- It did not take long for left wing Dmitrij Jaskin’s presence in the Chicago Wolves lineup to be felt.

The Chicago Wolves don’t play their first Western Conference Quarterfinals game until 6 p.m. Friday, but they’ve already set a team record: Most planes required to get the team to the game.
The Wolves, the Western Conference’s 2nd seed and Midwest Division champions, finally learned their playoff fate on Saturday night and will face the 7th-seeded Rochester Americans in the best-of-five first round; Chicago has never faced Rochester in the postseason, but split this season’s two-game series and are 6-7-1-0-0 all-time against the Amerks.
