CORPUS CHRISTI, TX – The Amarillo Bulls look to rekindle some of that magic they enjoyed on the road last weekend when they start a two game series against the Corpus Christi Ice Rays tonight at American Bank Center at 7 pm.
The Bulls collected four out of a possible six points last weekend and now make their first trip of the season to South Texas. The Icerays, for their part, have won two of their last three games including one over the Texas Tornado.
The two teams have not seen each other since the first weekend of the season where the Bulls were able to come out victorious 7-5. Since that game, both teams have under gone line-up changes and are at the opposite ends of the South Division standings. The Bulls sit alone in second place, while the Ice Rays are fourth just six points back of third.
The Amarillo Bulls are traveling this weekend without broadcaster Denis J. Puska who is back in the Texas Panhandle nursing laryngitis. However, fans will still be able to catch both games of this road trip with help of Corpus Christi Icerays broadcaster Ryan Holt. The Amarillo Bulls will pick up his feed for Friday’s and Saturday’s contests on ESPN1440 and on line at www.amarillobulls.com. The broadcasts will get underway with pre-game show coverage at 6:50 pm.
Hockey returns to the Amarillo Civic Center on Friday, Dec. 17 when the Amarillo Bulls host the Texas Tornado at 7 pm. There is a big night of activities planned including the appearance of Santa Claus.
