MAGNIFYING THE MATCHUP
The Jackals continue their southern swing tonight in the second of a back-to-back weekend with the South Carolina Stingrays. Last night, the Jackals silenced the Stingrays behind a 32-save shutout performance from C.J. Motte and goals from Tyler Currier and Mike Seidel. The shutout was Motte's first as a professional and the win was his first as a Jackal. Currier's goal was his third in as many games since joining the Jackals via a trade with Orlando. Last night's tilt was the first meeting between Elmira and South Carolina since April 11, 2014. Tonight is the final meeting of the season between the Jackals and Stingrays. In 22 all-time matchups the Jackals have won eight and lost three in extra time.
Rookie netminder C.J. Motte earned his first professional shutout last night with 32 saves in the 2-0 win over the Stingrays. Motte also earned his first win as a Jackal and second professional win. He went 1-2-1 in four games with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers (AHL) at the end of last season.
Forward Tyler Currier has made an instant impression on his new squad with three goals in as many games since being acquired from Orlando on October 24th.
Rookie forward Mark Bennett recorded his first professional point, an assist, last Saturday night.
The Jackals have the fourth-best road power-play in the league at 33.3% (4-for-12).
