Even though they picked up a win on Friday night, Reign coach John Wroblewski commented post-game that he didn’t like his team’s performance.
Didn't really like the way we played tonight. We surrendered clean wins on almost every face-off in the first half of the game. Didn't like our play on pucks. Game tying goal was another indicator. — Wrobo
