Well, not all of them.
The Phantoms currently with the Reading Royals, however, are still playing hockey! The eighth seeded Royals just knocked off the top-seeded Toledo Walleye in seven games and will now battle the Penguins affiliated Wheeling Nailers in the second round of the Kelly Cup tournament. The seventh and deciding game in the previous series featured a hat trick by our own Kevin Goumas!
Here’s the schedule for the upcoming series, which gets underway tonight:
|1||Fri, Apr 29, 2016||7:35 pm EDT||Reading||at||Wheeling||7:35 pm EDT|
|2||Mon, May 2, 2016||7:05 pm EDT||Reading||at||Wheeling||7:05 pm EDT|
|3||Wed, May 4, 2016||7:00 pm EDT||Wheeling||at||Reading||7:00 pm EDT|
|4||Thu, May 5, 2016||7:00 pm EDT||Wheeling||at||Reading||7:00 pm EDT|
|5||Sat, May 7, 2016||7:00 pm EDT||Wheeling||at||Reading||7:00 pm EDT|
|6||Mon, May 9, 2016||7:05 pm EDT||Reading||at||Wheeling||7:05 pm EDT|
|7||Wed, May 11, 2016||7:05 pm EDT||Reading||at||Wheeling||7:05 pm EDT|
The 2-3-2 format has the Royals at home on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday. Wednesday is a day game for the IronPigs, and would be an excellent opportunity to go down and support a winning hockey team. Saturday, both the Royals and Fightins will have home games at the same time in Reading.
In fact, the Phan Club has a block of seats and you can purchase your own directly from the Royals by using THIS LINK which has a preferred price of $10 per seat and only a $5 per transaction (not per ticket) fee! Then pick up the tickets at Will Call. They have seats available on BOTH Wednesday and Thursday, and I really think we should all join them!
See you at the arena,
