KeyBank "Keys to the Weekend"Dec 19, 2017
- The Phantoms have the third-highest-scoring offense in the AHL with a goals-per-game average of 3.67. Wolf Pack defenders will need to find a way to shut down the Lehigh Valley offense, as they have done so earlier in the season, with a 2-1 shootout win against the Phantoms on October 8 and a 5-4 win October 28.
- The Bruins came into the week winners of nine of their last ten, and 11 of their last 13 outings, and sitting atop the Atlantic Division. The Wolf Pack will have to replicate last Friday’s offensive onslaught against the Penguins in the Pack’s 7-3 win in order to beat the Bruins for the first time this season.
- The Wolf Pack are looking for their first home win against the Sound Tigers this season. One thing that can potentially help the Pack secure a win against their Bridgeport rivals is the team’s top-ranked power play. At 21.4%, the Wolf Pack are top five in the AHL when it comes to that special teams category.
