In the first contest, Elmira stormed out in the opening frame, peppering Connor Knapp with 20 shots on goal and 14 on target before the Royals recorded their first shot. Steven Shamanski scored on a 5-on-3 power-play in the opening stanza to give the Jackals a 1-0 lead. In the third period, Sean Wiles and Adam Hughesman netted early markers and paced the Royals 3-1 victory, which also clinched the DeMets Candy Turtle Cup Challenge. The next night, Kevin Sundher scored his first goal as a Jackal, but the Royals came away with the 5-1 win. In their previous meeting at First Arena on Valentine's Day, the Jackals received no love from Reading and fell 7-3, setting a new season-high in goals allowed. Elmira is 49-50-12 all-time against Reading.
