Reign 7, Las Vegas 1.

Looking more relaxed than they had all season, the Reign exploded for seven goals, and got a 27-save effort from Mike Zacharias. However high of a note they could go out on, one day after missing the playoffs, the Reign found it.

It was a particularly good night for Chad Starling, Colten Teubert, Jordan Nolan and C.J. Stretch, each of whom scored his first goal of the season. Greg Hogeboom scored his team-leading 32nd, Geoff Walker scored his 7th and Mike Egener his 11th.

Tim Kraus picked up three assists and Walker added two helpers. Teubert and Starling both finished plus-4 and the Reign killed all five short-handed situations.

Jon Rheault – who would have been playing his eighth game in 10 days – was held out, as was Peter Lenes, who was ineligible to come off IR. Dan Knapp stepped in for Luis Tremblay on defense.

More details in tomorrow’s editions of the Sun and Daily Bulletin.

    It’s a sad day today. No more Reign hockey for six months. I’m going to miss seeing the boys. Even though we lost two of three this past weekend and didn’t make the playoffs the best part of the weekend for me was being there to congratulate the players as they came off the ice following the 7-1 win over Las Vegas. It was such a thrill for me to slap each player’s hand as they walked to the locker room and to let them know that I, along with the all the Ontario Reign fans, are very proud of our team. I realize not all the players will return next season. But in my heart I believe every one of those young men will always be a part of the Reign family. I love you guys!
