SEWELL, NJ – The Philadelphia Rebels (14-16-1-1, 30 pts) host the New Jersey Titans (20-12-1-1, 42 pts) Saturday night in Hollydell Arena.
The Rebels welcome the Titans to Hollydell after a 3-2 road win in New Jersey on Friday night, and will complete the home-and-home series at Hollydell.
The Rebels are winners of 8 of their last 12 games, and have won their past three consecutive games. The Rebels continue to be successful against the Titans, who haven’t lost in regulation since October 29, but it is the second time this season the Rebels have knocked off New Jersey in regulation.
In Friday’s game, Connor Sedlak continued his hot stretch, scoring his team-leading 12th goal of the season and gave the Rebels the lead with just seconds remaining in the second period.
Sedlak wasn’t the only Rebel to get involved, as Klaus Jogi gave the Rebels an early lead en route to Friday night’s win. Jogi now has goals in back-to-back games, and is tied for third for most goals on the team (8).
Greg Spitznagel gave the Rebels some much needed insurance, scoring to extend their lead to 3-1 halfway through the third period. Spitznagel’s goal took some pressure off Jakub Krbecek, who played excellent on Friday night with 45 saves.
Saturday’s game will be the fourth meeting between the Rebels and Titans, and the Rebels have won two of the previous three. The Rebels are only four points behind a playoff spot, and can continue to work towards that on Saturday night.
