Michael Leighton pitched another shutout for the Rockford IceHogs as they blanked the Iowa Wild, 1-0 at the BMO Harris Bank Center.
It was the second straight night the division rivals faced off, and they got sick of seeing each other. Four fights in the first two periods, and more than forty combined penalty minutes highlighted a nasty night between the teams.
Mark McNeill broke the scoreless tie late in the third period, picking up assists from Marko Dano and Pierre-Cedric Labrie. The Hogs wrap up their homestand with two next week - Wednesday against Charlotte and Friday against Chicago, with both games starting at 7:00 pm.
