ELMIRA, N.Y. – First Arena may have never looked more inviting to the Elmira Jackals.
After dropping the first two games of the ECHL American North playoff finals at Cincinnati, the Jackals finally get the Cyclones on their home ice for the next three games.
Game 3 is Wednesday at 7:05 p.m., and if Elmira hopes to advance to the American Conference finals it certainly must win this one. Winning all three home games in the best-of-seven series wouldn’t be a bad way to regain the momentum the Jackals picked up by overcoming the Trenton Devils in the first round.
“We’re not where we want to be, but this series isn’t over until it’s over,” said Elmira forward Pierre-Luc Faubert, who has two goals and a plus-3 rating over the first two games.
