The Jackals are 4-3-1 this season against Trenton after an 8-5 loss in their last meeting on Jan. 18 in Elmira. The season series between Elmira and Trenton has been remarkably close with each team sporting identical 4-3-1 records against the other. Elmira has a slight edge in goal differential at 36-32 but has given up at least six goals to Trenton twice this season. The Titans are 3-1-1 in one-goal games against the Jackals while Elmira has a 2.5 average margin of victory against Trenton and two wins by four goals.
The Jackals had a relatively light workload in January with 11 games in 31 days. When the calendar flips to February, though, they will be facing a sprint to the end of the season chocked full of games. Elmira will play 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.
Mark your calendars! The Jackals are back on First Arena ice on Wednesday, February 6, 2013 to take on the Reading Royals at 7:05 p.m. The Jackals will be holding a post-game autograph session with select players and hosting Willowcreek Wednesday.
