AMARILLO, TX – The last leg of the Amarillo Bulls four-game road trip begins tomorrow (Thursday) night when they visit the Texas Tornado at Dr. Pepper Arena in the Frisco, TX at 7:30 pm. The two teams will also play again the following night.

The Bulls are coming off a split with the Topeka RoadRunners last weekend, falling on Friday night, but rallying with two in the third period to win on Saturday. The Tornado also split with the Corpus Christi IceRays on home ice on Friday and Saturday, and then took two on Monday and Tuesday in Odessa against the Jackalopes.

The top three spots in the South Division standings remain close with six points separating the first place Tornado and the third place Bulls. The RoadRunners are alone in second just three points ahead of Amarillo but also three behind the Texas Tornado.

The last time the Bulls and the Tornado met was three weeks ago in the Texas Panhandle where Amarillo took two straight 7-2 and 4-0. The Bulls are 5-1-1 in their last seven games while Texas is 5-1-0 in their last six.

The Bulls and the Tornado are ranked in the top 10 in specialty teams both on the power play and penalty kill. The two teams are also ranked 1 and 2 respectively in goals for and shots for per game.
