MAGNIFYING THE MATCHUP
Tonight's matchup marks the third consecutive game played between the Jackals and Royals. Each team won on the road this past weekend in a home-and-home set. The Jackals hosted the Royals on Friday for their third annual Pink in the Rink game presented by ArnotHealth but fell to their rivals 5-1. Jacob MacDonald scored the lone Jackals goal, which was his first of the season. Elmira exacted revenge the next night by spoiling the Royals' home opener with a 7-2 dismantling in front of a sold-out crowd at Santander Arena. Seven different Jackals recorded multi-point efforts as Cason Hohmann led the offense with a four-point night. Sam Marotta turned aside 21 shots to earn his second win in as many tries this season. Elmira holds a 51-51-12 all-time record against the Royals and the second annual DeMet's Candy Challenge Cup series is tied at one game apiece.
Forwards Colin Jacobs and Taylor Stefishen notched their first professional multi-goal games (2G) in Saturday's 7-2 win vs. Reading.
The Jackals have killed off each of their opponents' last eight power-play opportunities.
