Game Preview 3/13

The Elmira Enforcers welcome the FDNY to First Arena for the first time tonight at 7:05pm.

The Enforcers will battle with the FDNY as they both look to secure a victory before the Enforcers go into the final eleven games of their season, while the FDNY is tuning up for their annual game against the NYPD who the Enforcers saw a few months earlier.

Tonight’s game is the first ever meeting between the clubs.

TIME: 7:05 p.m.
PLACE: First Arena


- Tonight local Elmira Firefighter Eddie Palmieri will tend the crease for the Enforcers

- For the first time in Elmira history a number will be lowered from the rafters so that it may be worn again as Eddie Lowe dons an Elmira Jersey at First Arena for the first time since 2006

- Elmira college goaltender Charl Pretorius was recently named to the South African IIHF team for the second time in two years and tonight will back up Eddie Plamieri
