The Chicago Wolves are hosting Peanut Allergy Awareness Day, presented by Plentils, at 3 p.m. Sunday when they play the Iowa Wild. Allstate Arena’s Section 116 will be power-washed and cleaned to ensure fans with nut allergies can enjoy the game at ease. In addition, concessionnaires will not serve peanut-related food items.
After dropping their first game of the week 3-0 to Texas at Allstate Arena, the Chicago Wolves embarked on this season’s lone trip to Oklahoma City. There the Wolves pulled off a weekend sweep of the Barons, pushing their winning streak over OKC to four games and earning the team a crucial four points to remain in the hunt for the playoffs. This week could prove to be a make-or-break moment for the team as they play a home-and-home with Milwaukee on Friday and Saturday and host Iowa on Sunday. Since their 3-2 overtime loss at Allstate Arena on Feb. 11, the seventh-ranked Admirals have gone 4-11-2, leaving their playoff position vulnerable with Adirondack (70 points/63 games played), Hamilton (70/65), Chicago (69/63), Toronto (69/63), and Lake Erie (66/63) lurking in the No. 8-12 spots.
