Thunderbirds Ready For Annual School Day Game

The Springfield Thunderbirds are getting ready for their annual School Day game at the Mass Mutual Center. Puck drop is at 10:35a,m and the city is expected to see thousand of kids in the middle of a school day in downtown.

The Thunderbirds will host the Syracuse Crunch at the Mass Mutual Center.

The event, proudly presented by MassMutual and Fontaine Bros., will serve as a synergy between the classroom and the hockey rink. Springfield Public Schools students in attendance will receive a special Thunderbirds-themed educational workbook, featuring subjects ranging from health to math and science. The game presentation inside the MassMutual Center that morning will also take on a classroom feel, as schools will have the opportunity to become part of the game day experience through various activities and performances.

“The School Day Game is a shining example of how local businesses and organizations can creatively support schools and education," said Springfield Public Schools Superintendent Daniel Warwick. “Education occurs in a variety of ways and sometimes, the most memorable and valuable lessons happen outside of the classroom. We are grateful for this partnership with the Thunderbirds because of the unique experience it provides for our students – an opportunity to learn new things, have fun, and explore their city all in one.”

The Thunderbirds are chasing the Providence Bruins in the American Hockey League's Atlantic Division. Springfield has 14 points the young AHL season. Syracuse is fifth in the Northern Division. They have a total of 11 points.
