Countless forced passes and unforced turnovers resulted in another Rockford IceHogs road loss last night, 3-2 to the Milwaukee Admirals.
The loss drops the IceHogs to 2 games below the .500 mark (18-20-4-2) for the first time this season.
Friday’s defeat extends Rockford’s road losing streak to 7 games (0-5-1-1).
Rockford has now also dropped 11 consecutive division road losses (0-9-1-1) on the season.
The picture is much worse when you look at their last 15 road contests overall. The IceHogs are 2-10-2-1 in those games. They aren’t getting blown away, as their minus-25 goal differential over those last 15 road tilts does prove, but they aren’t playing good enough hockey with near enough consistency. And finding ways to win on the road is not the IceHogs specialty.
