The Reading Royals lost Sunday night, but they did so with Christmas cheer.

The Royals donned some special Christmas sweater jerseys Sunday night in a 3-2 loss to the Elmira Jackals at the Santander Arena.

The Royals fell behind 1-0 and 2-1, but rallied to tie the game both times.

But Kyle Bushee's goal in the second period broke a 2-2 tie and proved to be the difference.

The Royals are now winless in their last five games.
