JANESVILLE, WI – Swept last weekend in Minnesota, the Jets open a home revenge series against the division-leading Magicians.
Janesville dropped a 5-2 contest Saturday night in Richfield before picking up a point in a shootout loss on Sunday evening. The Jets led briefly in Sunday’s third period but couldn’t hang on.
In each of last weekend’s games, the Magicians jumped out to 2-0 leads before the Jets responded. Home, rested, and ready, Janesville has two big opportunities ahead of them to make up some of the seven-point gap between 1st and 3rd.
Baker Tilly is sponsoring tonight’s Hockey Bingo Night, where the first 200 fans through the door will receive a bingo card filled with hockey and in-game events to mark off throughout the evening. The first prize winner will receive an Amazon Echo Show, and $50 in Culver’s gift cards are available for the 2nd and 3rd place winners. All finished bingo cards can be exchanged at the promo table tonight for free 2018-19 playoff tickets.
Tomorrow night, the third annual Guns ‘N Hoses Night features a 4:30pm charity game between the Police and Fire. Doors to their game open at 3:45pm and the Jets are offering half-price beer for the duration of the charity game. The first 150 fans to attend the Police vs. Fire game can pick up free admission to the following Jets game.
Tonight’s contest is also the free Game of the Week on HockeyTV. Fans can tune in to Mike Hammett’s play-by-play call free of charge on HockeyTV.com.
