MAGNIFYING THE MATCHUP

The Jackals wrap up their season-long six game road trip with three games, in three nights, in Florida, beginning with two games against the Everblades. Florida leads the Eastern Conference with 63 points and a 31-14-1 record, including a 15-7-0 record at home. Matt Willows leads the Everblades with 16 goals, 25 assists, and 41 points, while Anthony Peters has a record of 18-10-1 with a 2.14 goals-against-average, good for seventh in the ECHL.
