Reign win Game 3 in Idaho, take 2-1 series lead

The Ontario Reign, ECHL affiliate of the LA Kings, continue to push ahead in the playoffs.

A pair of third period goals propelled the Reign to a 2-1 win over the Idaho Steelheads on Wednesday night, giving them a 2-1 lead in their second round playoff series.

Facing a 1-0 deficit heading into the third period for the third straight road playoff game wasn’t a problem, as Mario Lamoureux scored the deciding goal with just 4:33 left in the period and Ontario held on to win.

Kings prospect JF Berube continued his hot play in net, stopping 28 shots.  With the win, he’s now 6-0-1 in the playoffs this season.  Berube was beat by Idaho defenseman Patrick Cullity early in the first period and after that he shut the door on the Steelheads the rest of the night.  His 1.37 goals against average ranks second in the ECHL playoffs.

Adrian Van de Mosselaer had the other Reign goal when he scored early in the third period to tie thing at 1-1.  It was his first goal of the post-season.

Kings prospect Nick Ebert was held without a point, ending his point scoring streak at six games.

The best-of-seven series will continue in Idaho, with Game 4 on Friday and Game 5 on Saturday.  Should a Game 6 be necessary, it will be played in Ontario next Tuesday night.
