The Elmira Enforcers face off with the Carolina Thunderbirds at First Arena again tonight for the third straight time.

The Enforcers (5-6-0-2, 17 pts, .436%) will battle with the Thunderbirds (9-3-0-1, 28 pts, .718%) as they look to rebound from the previous weekend sweep by the Thunderbirds.

Tonight’s game is the fifth of fourteen meetings between the clubs this season.


TIME: 7:05 p.m.




- Marko Novosel is on a hot  streak as he has now scored 5 goals in his last 3 games

 - Troy Passingham got back in the win column for the first time since Port Huron as he got back in the net on Saturday night and looked on top of his game after 2 games off

-  Séan Reynolds continues to lead the team in points, but has some competition for team lead in goals as Brandon Vuic tied him this last weekend as they both sit at 7.
