Looking to Rebound
The Thunder continue their season this weekend against Western Illinois University. The two MACHA teams have already played twice this season, with Western coming away with both wins. Both of them were close; game one being a 6-5 OT loss for Wheaton followed by a 3-1 loss the next day. Further, Western Illinois had the home ice advantage for both of those games. Wheaton will be home for both of these, and will look to the home crowd and new forwards Blake Eitreim and Julian Erb to give them an extra boost to come away with two more wins this weekend. Puck drop for Friday’s match up is scheduled for 8:40, and a free fan skate will follow the game.
