Nailers race past Royals, 5-2

The Reading Royals return home from a season-long road trip did not go as they'd planned Saturday night.

The Wheeling Nailers scored four times in the third period en route to a 5-2 loss over the Royals at the Santander Arena.

The Royals wore Olympic-themed jerseys with medals on the front in the game.

Legendary wrestler George "The Animal" Steele dropped the ceremonial puck before the game began.
