  • Brett Sutter, who had already missed every practice earlier this week, apparently did not take a third period shift. If Sutter can't go tonight, Reign center depth is perilously thin.
  • You name it, Ontario dominated in every which way last night: 59-40 even strength Corsi, 18-7 ES chances, 3-1 final.

  • Patrick McNally, who's probably considered San Jose's number-six defender, might get the hook tonight because of this play. Next up? Perhaps Jonny's brother, Michael Brodzinski.
  • I'd expect a number of line-up changes by Roy Sommer, as the Cuda are facing elimination. Frazer McLaren and Alex Gallant may also suit up.
  • Rourke Chartier (fresh from WHL's Kelowna) and Kevin Lebanc (OHL's Barrie) will make their AHL debuts.
