This season, the Chill have a record of 2-6 against Quad City, but they have two victories in three games at the Family Arena.
Quad City: Gergo Nagy: 7 Goals, 17 assist, 24 points

Quad City: The Mallards feature one of the best goalie combinations in the league as Thomas Heemserk and Ty Rimmer have the 6th and 7th best goals against average respectively in the league. Rimmer was in goal last night in the Land of Lincoln, so expect Heemserk to be between the pipes in the Show Me State tonight.

The Chill are scheduled to host Brampton Sunday night, Denver on Wednesday and Arizona Friday night. After that, the Chill embark on a 5 game road trip.
