- Friday marks the AHL-Reign's first-ever teddy bear toss. All bears donated will benefit children in local hospitals.
- I'm personally hoping Kevin Raine scores the first goal for Ontario because how sweet would those headlines be? "Rain makes it rain for the Reign!" "Reigns' Raine makes it rain!" You get the idea.
- Stothers has mixed up his lines a bit in the last couple of games, so we'll see if he's in a mix-and-match mood again. Consider too that Adrian Kempe has joined Sweden at World Juniors./

- Recently waived Anton Khudobin drew his first AHL start on Friday against the San Jose Barracuda, backstopping the Gulls to a 3-2 win. Will San Diego "Anton" up on back-to-back nights?
- San Diego came back from a 1-0 and a 2-1 deficit to win in OT last night; they also had their teddy bear toss game last night. Can Reign fans match the output?/
Ontario: 14-4-2-1, 33 points (1st Pacific Division, 2nd Western Conference)
Bakersfield: 11-11-1-1, 24 points (5th Pacific Division, 11th Western Conference)
