    • Reading leads in the contest at 2 – 0 on the strength of goals by Mike Pereira (1:20 into the first period) and Ryan Penny (10:11 into the first).
    • Goaltender Martin Ouellette started the game for the Royals and made all eight saves he was called upon to make in 13:53 of game time; Jason Kasdorf was in net for Elmira and had made eleven saves on thirteen shots at the time the game was halted.
