The IceRays are set to host the Odessa Jackalopes this evening for the first of a three-game series. The Rays are coming off of a split in Odessa where Corpus won the second game.
There are a couple of line up adjustments that have been made from the 5-2 win on Saturday night. Corpus Christi has moved Blake Lewis back to the first line center role that was occupied by Oliver Stumpel, who is out of the lineup this evening. Lewis will be centering Contreras and Zagrzebski tonight.
The second line of Crolley, Merkley, and Butler remains intact from the win. Danny Nekhamiyev and Jude Kurtas flip spots from the third and fourth lines. The fourth line with be centered by Jack Wandmacher who makes his return to the ice for the first time since the team was in El Paso in mid-January.
The defensive core and starting goaltender remain the same from last Saturday night with Stefan Carney looking to extend the win streak in games that he starts.
