Tonight, the Jackals return to First Arena to host the Reading Royals for the ninth of fifteen meetings this season, and the fourth of seven in Elmira. The last meeting between these two East Division rivals finished the 2014 calendar year in style for Sam Marotta and the Jackals. The rookie netminder recorded his first professional shutout for a 4-0 win on New Year's Eve. Matt Tassone and Steven Shamanski scored on the power-play while Colin Jacobs and Phil Bronner added even strength tallied to propel the pesky Jackals to victory. All four of the Jackals' goals came in the third period. Captain Matt Tassone leads the Jackals against Reading with eight points (five goals, three assists) in seven games this season. The Jackals hold a 48-46-11 all-time advantage in the series against Reading. This year's DeMet's Candy Turtle Cup Challenge is knotted at four games apiece.
