(WAUSAU, WI)- The RiverWolves host the Milwaukee Power in the first game of a home and home series this weekend Friday night at Marathon Park Ice Arena. Heading into Friday night’s contest Wausau holds a 1-11-1 record, while Milwaukee has a 4-15 record this season.
What to Watch For
Wausau will be playing in their first home game since October 11th. To date Wausau has a 1-1-1 record on the home ice.
