The Knighthawks will play their final three games of the regular season at home, marking the team’s longest homestand of the year.
The Knighthawks will play all but two of their home games on Saturday nights except for Friday, Jan. 20 against intrastate rival Buffalo and a matinee matchup against Philadelphia on Sunday, March 19.
