The Rockford IceHogs have been on fire to start the 2014-15 AHL season. Win or lose, this is going to be a fun team to watch. Heading West on I-90, it’s mostly win for the Hogs. Rockford has won a franchise-record eight straight and is 10-2-0-1 in a baker’s dozen of games. The IceHogs […]
The Rockford IceHogs are preparing to finish up their longest road jaunt of 2014-15. So far it has been a productive one with the Hogs taking five of six points in their first three games of the trip.

The end of week 19 of the AHL schedule featured back-to-back home games for the Rockford IceHogs. After a big win against Hamilton earlier in the week, the Hogs needed to pick up another four points against Iowa and Utica to continue their playoff push.
Week 15 of the AHL schedule may not have started the best way for the IceHogs, but it finished extremely well as they picked up 2 consecutive victories over the weekend against Lake Erie.

The IceHogs played 3 games to close out 2013, but none of them went their way. With these 3 losses, their losing streak stretched to 6 games and saw the club fall below .500 for the first time since November 23rd.
The IceHogs played in 2 games before going into the Christmas break. The contests didn’t go the way they would’ve liked as they faced 2 Midwest Division rivals on the road and at home.
