Game Preview 11/9

by Jon Kliment

The Elmira Enforcers take on the Thunder as they look for their first weekend sweep. The Enforcers (1-2-1-1, 6 points, .400%) take on the Thunder (1-4-0-0, 3 points, .200%) as the Thunder wrap up their first road trip of this season.

The Thunder rallied to push the Enforcers to the limit last night, but the Enforcers were able to pull out their first regulation win and do it at home. Delaware looks to stave off their second weekend sweep in a row as Elmira tries to extend their point streak to four games.

This is the second of five meetings at First Arena and the second of ten in the season series.
