Tonight the Jackals face the Royals for the seventh of 15 meetings this season and the fourth of eight at Santander Arena. Last night the Jackal hosted Reading in front of a soldout crowd at First Arena. However, first period goals from Matt Hatch and Pat Mullane gave Reading the early advantage. Olivier Labelle and Ryan Cruthers added second period tallies to extend Reading's lead. Ryan Rashid and Lucas Bloodoff scored in the third period but the comeback would fall short as Cam Reid added the Royals' fifth goal and propelled them past the Jackals 5-2. Travis Fullerton turned aside 25 of 29 shots in 40 minutes but was saddled with the loss. Sam Marotta entered the game in the third period and stopped four of five shots faced. Connor Knapp stopped 24 of 26 shots faced to earn the win. The Jackals hold a 47-45-11 advantage in the all-time series against the Royals.
The Jackals have found tremendous success this season when they have posted at least a trio of tallies. Elmira is 15-0-1 this year in games where they score three or more times. They are 7-0-0 when scoring exactly three goals.
