What To Watch For: Mar. 16-22
The Week Ahead
The Albany Devils will host the second half of their six-game homestand this week. The team hosts the Norfolk Admirals at Times Union Center on Wednesday (7 pm) and Saturday (5 pm). The Devils conclude this week’s games against the Hartford Wolf Pack Sunday (3 pm).
Three of Six
Last week, the Devils registered three-of-six points during three games in three days at Times Union Center. The team defeated the Worcester Sharks, 3-2, Friday and lost to the Syracuse Crunch, 2-1, Saturday. Albany then fell to the Springfield Falcons, 1-0, in a shootout Sunday.
Stand Up and Fight
During Saturday’s game, the Devils will host the second annual “Devils Fight Cancer Night.” Tickets are $18 with $5 benefitting the Melodies Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders at the Bernard and Millie Duker Children’s Hospital at Albany Medical Center. Supporters will have the opportunity to donate $5 at the game to win various prizes.
The first 5,000 patrons to arrive for Sunday’s game will receive the official 2014-15 Albany Devils Team Poster, courtesy of Recovery Sports Grill. Fans are encouraged to stay afterwards for a postgame autograph session and public skate.
Just ahead of “Autism Awareness Month” in April, the Devils will host their first ever “Autism Awareness Game” Sunday. Elements of the game presentation will be scaled back to better accommodate those on the spectrum.
