The Ontario Reign scored twice in the third period Wednesday night to beat the Idaho Steelheads 2-1. Ontario has a 2-1 lead in the best-of-seven Kelly Cup Western Conference Semifinals.
Defenseman Patrick Cullity- who rejoined the Steelheads just hours before the game- scored Idaho's lone goal. Brad Ralph's squad out-shot and out-chanced the visiting Reign, but couldn't find a way to scrape out a win.
"I thought we out-played them. I thought it was our game to be had," said coach Ralph. "Unfortunately, pucks weren't going in the net for us."
"They hung on and played a solid, greasy road game, and I think they stole a win from us," added Ralph. "We've outplayed in two of three games, so in the course of a seven game series, we're hoping we can get on top."
Game four is Friday night at CenturyLink Arena.
