The Chicago Wolves earned an overtime win Wednesday against the Utica Comets and will face the same team tonight to close out the season series. The Wolves are 2-0-0-0 against the Comets all-time in Rosemont and have outscored them 6-3 in those two tilts. But Chicago has not strung together more than two wins in a row at home this year, a streak currently matched thanks to wins Wednesday (UTI) and March 1 (MIL).
By this point, you know the Chicago Wolves revealed their commemorative St. Patrick’s Day jerseys during Wednesday’s 2-1 overtime triumph over Utica. As you’re contemplating a bid on these unique jerseys, you might not be quite as certain how this charitable endeavor directly benefits everyone in the Chicago area. Take a moment to meet Maurice Snell and Jamie Smith: two young men from Chicago diagnosed with autism at an early age. They’re representative of the work done by Easter Seals Metropolitan Chicago, an organization that operates 21 programs and serves 38,000 people annually.
The Utica Comets shoot into Rosemont for the first time this season and just the second time since joining the league in 2013-14 for tilts on Wednesday and Saturday. The roster features six former Wolves: Alex Friesen, Nicklas Jensen, Darren Archibald, Alexandre Grenier, John Negrin, and Peter Andersson.
