Elmira nets 4 goals in final period to knock off Royals

Elmira uses huge third period to defeat Royals

READING, Pa. - The Royals have been sizzling at home as of late. Reading's win Saturday night over Elmira was the team's tenth straight victory at the Sovereign Center. That mark sets a new team record.

The Royals looked to push the streak to 11 games Monday afternoon against those same Jackals in a matinee game at the Sovereign Center.

Behind goals from Joel Champagne and David Marshall, Reading took a 2-1 lead into the third and final period. That's where things got messy.

In a blitzkrieg, the Jackals rattled off four unanswered goals in the third and final period to capture a 5-2 win over the Royals.

Louie Caporusso netted his second goal in the final frame to tie it at 2-2. Alexander Beauregard, Justin Daniels and Dustin Gazley scored the rest of Elmira's goals in the third.

The Royals head into the all-star break still leading the Eastern Conference by four points. They'll return to action on Saturday, February 26th when Las Vegas visits Reading for the weekend.
