The Ontario Reign took on the Texas Stars, Stockton Heat and Bakersfield Condors last week for a week record of 2-1-0-0 and improved their overall record to 19-9-2-1 and remain on top of the Pacific Division.
The Reign kick started the week by snapping a three-game losing streak, their longest of the season, with a 3-2 overtime victory over the Stars Tuesday evening at Citizens Business Bank Arena. Justin Auger buried both goals during regulation time and setup Kevin Gravel for the game-winning marker 1:37 into the extra session.
The momentum traveled into Friday’s tilt against the Heat as Sean Backman and Nic Dowd each scored a goal and two assists, while Adrian Kempe and Gravel each pitched in a goal and an assist in a 6-1 triumph. The goals came to a halt in Bakersfield Saturday night as the Condors walked away with a 4-0 victory.
