GAME PREVIEW: The Gulls and Reign Match Up for the Eighth Time This Season (7:05p.m. PT)

San Diego and Ontario meet for the eighth of twelve regular-season faceoffs, tonight at Valley View Casino Center. The Gulls lead the season series between the two clubs, 4-3, but are coming off of a blank effort in their last matchup.

In that contest, Ontario winger Michael Mersch opened scoring with just six seconds remaining in the first frame. Defenseman Jeff Schultz netted the Reign’s second and final goal of the game, a power play goal at 5:52 of the second period.

The Gulls tallied a 3-2 victory in Bakersfield last night to bring their current season record of 24-20-1-1 (50 points) entering tonight’s game. The Reign are at the top of the Pacific Division with a 30-13-3-1 record (64 points).
