Allen Americans (25-39-4-2; 56 points) @ Wichita Thunder (26-31-9-3; 64 points) 7:05 pm CST 

Tonight, the Allen Americans and the Wichita Thunder open a two-game series at INTRUST Bank Arena. It will be both teams last series of the season, as neither team qualified for the playoffs. The Americans lead the season series [8-2-0-2].

Last Game:

 Tonight’s game is a familiar sight as the Americans and the Thunder battled it out at the Allen Event Center last Saturday. The Americans scored the first goal on the night, and kept the ball rolling as Gary Steffes would score a hat trick adding his 4th, 5th, and 6th goals of the season.
