The Jackals host Wheeling at First Arena for the first home meeting of the season. Elmira visited the Nailers at WesBanco Arena last Wednesday for a 10:35 a.m. school day game. First period goals from Taylor Stefishen and Mike Seidel provided the Jackals with a 2-0 lead going into the third period, but the Nailers battled back and tied the game, sending it into extra time. Neither team capitalized in overtime, so the contest continued into a shootout. The Nailers topped the Jackals in the skills competition and took the first meeting of the season. Last season the Jackals and Nailers met fifteen times and Elmira finished with a 3-9-3 record against their former Atlantic Division rival. Despite the tough sledding last season, the Jackals hold the advantage with a 37-25-9 all-time record against the Nailers.
Travis Fullerton has taken his game to the next level in the month of November. The Riverview, NB native is 3-0-1 with a 1.46 goals-against-average and a .947 save percentage in four starts this month.
