With a good handful of players called up to the LA Kings, buckle up — the Ontario Reign could be in for a wild ride as coach Marco Sturm tries to patch a lineup together.
In town for tonight’s game are the — anything but an expansion team — Coachella Valley Firebirds. They sit atop the Pacific Division standings and are a cool 13 points ahead of the Reign.
