  • Text size: + -

WHEELING, W. Va. - The Elmira Jackals ended the regular season by blowing a two-goal lead in the third period and losing 4-3 in a shootout at Wheeling on Saturday, but it was good enough to give them the top seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs for the first time in the franchise's five-year ECHL history.

Elmira will play Reading in the first round and will have an unusual challenge for a top seed as the first two games of the best-of-5 series will be at Reading. Those games are Tuesday and Wednesday, then the series shifts to Elmira for the final three games Friday, Saturday, and the following Monday. All games begin at 7:05 p.m. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
