Tucson can secure a winning record on the trip with a victory over the Silver Knights, which would also give the Roadrunners a 3-2 advantage over Henderson in the season series. The AHL affiliate of the Vegas Golden Knights are hosting the Roadrunners for the final outing of their current home stand, after back-to-back wins against the Calgary Wranglers Friday and Saturday from The Dollar Loan Center.
