On a night full of penalties and short on 5-on-5 play, the Reign’s special teams were rather ordinary.
The Bakersfield Condors scored five power-play goals en route to an 8-3 win Wednesday at Rabobank Arena.
The Reign’s power play, which entered the game converting at a blistering 8-for-18 rate, took a step backward, going just 1-for-11.
Greg Hogeboom, Peter Lenes and Jon Rheault scored for the Reign, the latter coming 1:29 into the second period to erase a 3-1 deficit and tie the game at 3.
The Condors ended goaltender Mike Zacharias’ night early by scoring four goals in less than 26 minutes on the Reign starter.
