The Reading Royals have caught fire at the perfect time. They have won six straight games and are just one point out of first place in the Eastern Conference with just a month's worth of regular season left.

The team can tie it's season-best win streak Wednesday night in Elmira.

Yannick Tifu returned to the lineup over the weekend, giving the Royals a lift following a few injuries (T.J. Syner, Sean Wiles) and Josh Brittain's recall.

Whether the Royals make any moves before Thursday's trade deadline remains to be seen, but the team likes what its doing on the ice right now in a tight playoff hunt.
