This is the 7th of 12 meetings between the two teams this season, with seven of the last eight overall matchups being against Worcester. The Royals are 4-2-0 against the Railers.

In their previous game, Worcester beat Reading, 2-1. After falling into a 2-0 hole after 20 minutes, Jacob Pritchard scored his first goal since Dec. 1 in the middle frame after Jackson Cressey's effort forced a turnover by the Railers.
