San Jose Barracuda @ Ontario Reign (Friday) / San Jose Barracuda @ Ontario Reign (Saturday)
Ontario Reign Lines
(Based on last game - stick tap, Jason Lewis for the lines)
- Peter Budaj was absolutely fantastic in the Pacific's 1-0 loss during the ASG.
- Sean Backman was terrific as well, scoring a goal for the Pacific in the championship elimination round.
- The team is now back to work and ready to take on the SJ Barracuda in a pair of games this weekend.
- "Big Mike" Michael Mersch scored his team-leading 17th goal of the season on the team's first power play. He probably could've had a meat trick if not for Dell being terrific in net.
- Peter Budaj recorded his league-leading sixth shutout of the season. What can he possibly do tonight??
