Karl Taylor gets props in Manchester.

Manchester Monarchs head coach Mark Morris gave Ontario Reign coach Karl Taylor a shout-out after the Monarchs, the Kings’ AHL affiliate, beat Springfield 4-2 this afternoon.

Jon Rheault and Dusty Collins both scored goals, and here was Morris’ quote (from http://manchestermonarchs.com/fullstory.php?id=3276):

“We have to give a lot of credit to our ECHL affiliate’s coach Karl Taylor (Ontario Reign) for picking players for us to call up,” said Morris. “Their (Rheault, Collins) continuous effort were key factors in tonight’s win. We continue to find a way to win.”
