David Walker scored 2:44 into the period to put the Reign up 2-0, getting a good pass to the doorstep from Jon Francisco during a 5-on-4 power play. Vegas answered at 5:01 when Matt Beaudoin scored immediately off a faceoff.
The kicker? That one shot by Walker was the Reign’s only SOG all period. They were outshot 18-1 in the second period, thanks in part to three short-handed situations (including a 5-on-3) compared to two for the Wranglers.
Again, Jeff Zatkoff bails them out of a few sticky situations.
More to come following the third…
