The Odessa Jackalopes look to keep their slim playoff hopes alive when they face the Corpus Christi IceRays at 7:05 tonight at the American Bank Center.

Odessa (6-35-3) trails Corpus Christi by 29 points in the North American Hockey League’s South Division standings, with 16 games remaining to play.

A victory by the IceRays (19-20-6) would put them 31 points in front of Odessa, with just 15 games (or 30 points) remaining, snapping the Jackalopes streak of five consecutive years in the postseason.

The IceRays defeated Odessa 6-3 on Wednesday after spotting the visitors a quick 1-0 lead on Matt Volonnino’s goals just 70 seconds into the game.

Anthony Olguin leads the Jackalopes with 19 points (10 goals, nine assists), with Taylor Portner (7-9-16) sitting in second.
