The Jackals are facing the IceMen tonight for the fourth, and final, time this season. The Jackals are 2-0-1 against Evansville in its inaugural ECHL season which includes a 1-0-0 mark in Evansville. The IceMen captured the last game between the clubs with a 4-3 OT win on Jan. 12 in Elmira. That continued an interesting dynamic in the season series where the team that has scored first has lost each time. The Jackals have come back from down 2-0 to win each of their two against Evansville including a 6-3 triumph in their first ever visit here on Jan. 28. Evansville is 12-8-3 when scoring first while Elmira is 15-5-3.
The Jackals had a light workload in January with 11 games (7-3-1) in 31 days. Now that the calendar has turned to February they will be facing a sprint to the end of the season chocked full of games. Elmira plays 13 games in February and 16 games in March which translates to an average of a game every other day (29 games in 58 days) over the final two months of the season. It's almost a 50-50 split between home and away with 15 on the road and 14 at First Arena. Eighteen of the 29 games are against divisional opponents.
