The Northeast Generals and Titans will play a two-game series this weekend starting on Friday, February 19 at 9:00 PM and then on Saturday, February 20 at 9:15 PM. The games were originally scheduled to be played in Attleboro, MA but they had to be moved within the past week to the Middletown Sports Complex, hence the reason for the late start times.
