Reign 4, Stockton 0.

Kellen Briggs stopped all 40 shots he faced and the Reign got two goals from defenseman David Walker, one each from new linemates Kyle Kraemer and Tim Kraus. The win evens the Reign’s preseason record at 1-1, having lost 6-2 the night before in Stockton.

Garrett Zemlak sat out the game on the bench, and Mike Zacharias didn’t get in either game at all, but Karl Taylor said he hasn’t made a decision yet on who will back up Martin Jones.

More on that and the rest of the game in tomorrow’s editions of the Sun and Daily Bulletin.

    Off topic, but what’s up with the player number changes?

    I can attest to Kraus’ switch from 18 to 12. He told me that Jon Rheault had already taken #12 when both arrived in 2008. So he settled for #18, even though #12 had been his number all his life prior to that. Now that Rheault has moved on, Kraus wanted 12 back. Judging by his game Saturday, he won’t want to give it up any time soon.

    Obviously Chad must have wanted 18 knowing that was available to him, but I’m not sure why. Stay tuned.

    C’mon, 4 comments and 3 of them deal with numbers/jerseys. Let’s deal with the hockey and get a program next game. The passing in the attacking zone was the best I’ve seen in a year, David Walker’s one timers were sweet, and Kraus’ energy was great. I was hoping to see more of Reggie’s talent and our forechecking was smokin’. Kind of stupid though to be playing Stockton so many times before the season.
