Biggest game of the season for the Wolves tonight. They have 4 games left in their season and are currently tied with the Ads for 9th in the conference with 81 points, 2 points clear of the final playoff spot. It's simple: they win tonight and they move into a playoff spot while simultaneously preventing Milwaukee from moving up. If they lose, it's the other way around. Milwaukee moves up into a playoff spot and the Wolves stay behind.

Barring a collapse by the Americans or Barons to end the season, I think they're safely in the playoffs, which means it's only the 8th and final playoff spot that's up for grabs. Rockford, Milwaukee and Chicago are the three teams vying for that spot as 11th place Lake Erie and 12th place Abbotsford are pretty much out of it. Rockford currently holds the 8th spot but they've played two more games than both Milwaukee and Chicago and only have 2 games left to play. Basically, it's the Wolves and the team they're playing tonight that I believe are in this race and they've got two games left against eachother, tonight and on Saturday.

I've been quite pessimistic about the team lately but one can hope they can still turn it around and the coach finally wakes up. Of course, that might be asking for too much but still... Let's go Wolves!

The Ads are leading 1-0 with about 7 minutes left and the Wolves don't even have a shot yet.

Way to rise to the occasion, Wolves.

Looks like the lines are:

Sweatt - Matsumoto - Haydar

Sterling - Schroeder - Gordon

Archibald - Kattelus - Davies

Jensen - Friesen - Grenier

Matheson - Regner

Sauve - Corrado

Groulx - Blain

So 6/12 forwards and 2/6 D are prospects. A little better, but I wish they'd put in Mallet already. Guy's wasting away in the box.

Also for those not watching/listening, you get a cookie if you guess who the starter is! ;)

2-0 Admirals as Josh Shalla scores on a breakaway.

Stick a fork in these Wolves. They're done. Halfway through the game, down 2-0, and with only 5 shots on net.

Hmm, maybe with the NHL regular season drawing to a close, the Wolves are just trying to keep from getting our possible replacement players injured and are keeping them safe for us when playoffs roll around.

Kevin Henderson scores for Milwaukee. 3-0 Admirals and they're also going to the PP as Sterling goes to the box.

Wolves can't win a big game for the life of them. Pathetic.

Apparently bad coverage by Sauve on that 3-0 goal.

It's looking like they're going to miss the playoffs. Can't generate any goals... Jensen playing well but on the 4th line, Sweatt-Schroeder-Archibald line split up when it had been working, Haydar on the point during a PP, starting Climie back to back to back and wearing him into the ground... not to mention the lineup decisions. Just a very poorly coached team.

I don't see how you can pin that on Chicago management.

How much more does a coach have to do to ensure his team's chances go into the tank?

Sterling gets the team on the board on the powerplay with his 24th of the year.

3-1 Admirals.

Hold the phone guys. Sweatt scores his 15th of the season to get the Wolves within one. 4:05 to go in the 3rd.
