Tucson Roadrunners to begin five game homestand at TCC
The Tucson Roadrunners are beginning a five game homestand over nine days at the Tucson Convention Center.
It begins with a make-up game, Tuesday night, against Manitoba. The Roadrunners are winless in their last four games.
Tucson welcomes back left wing Brendan Perlini, defenseman Anthony DeAngelo, and center Laurent Dauphin back from the Coyotes.
"I know they haven't won in four so it will be nice coming back home, and to get all five games would be huge," said Perlini, who was named to the AHL All-Star team last month. "The guys looked sharp out there in practice and looked good, so I'm excited for the game."
"We had a tough road trip," said defenseman Kyle Wood. "Hopefully, we can get these next few games and get back in the race and get back to the top of our division again."
The Roadrunners are in fourth place out of eight teams in the Pacific division. The homestand includes two games with Texas, and two games with Ontario.
