I finally had a chance to watch Rockford’s 6-4 win at Milwaukee on Wednesday night.
Rockford reclaimed the top spot in the AHL Central Division with the victory over the Milwaukee Admirals. The IceHogs are now in Cleveland to face off with the Lake Erie Monsters this Friday and Saturday nights. For the Monsters, Friday and Saturday will mark their second and third games in as many nights as Lake Erie are hosting a rare three home games in three consecutive nights this week.
Marko Dano made his return to the lineup after missing the last 2 and 2/3 games with a head injury. He cleared his final protocol on Tuesday.
It was a weird game.
Rockford dominated the first period, scoring 3 unanswered first period goals. In the end, it was good they did because Milwaukee handled the IceHogs quite favorably for the next 40 minutes.
