  • The Reign did not hold a morning skate as Head Coach Mike Stothers declared, "They need ice tomorrow like a turtle needs air brakes."
  • Kempe has shown a lot of growth in his transition from wing to center and his critical faceoff win eventually led to Auger's overtime game-winning goal.
  • Update: There appear to be no changes in tonight's line-up./

  • Matt Hackett has been excellent in Anton Khudobin's absence, giving his team a chance to win every night. Khudobin is out once again tonight.
  • The Gulls have been playing musical chairs with just-arrived youngsters like Kalle Kossila, Andrew Welinski, Brian Cooper, and Jacob Larsson. Who's in tonight?
  • Update: Welinski, Cooper, and Kossila are in. McGrattan and Larsson are out. Perhaps Dallas Eakins is opting for more speed tonight.
