The Royals are on fire right now, hot enough to help their fans forget just how cold it is outside.

Unfortunately for them, the team is taking that hot streak on the road for a week and a half.
 

Reading has won seven straight games and looks to make it eight on Friday night in Kalamazoo. The Royals excited for the long trip for two reasons.

First, they are one of the best teams in the ECHL away from home ice. Second, the Royals have a chance to make moves in the conference, facing teams at both the top and bottom of the standings.

The road trip includes stops in Kalamazoo, Toledo, Cincinnati and Evansville.
