TONIGHT:

The Ontario Reign (40-18-4-5) host the Bakersfield Condors (24-36-3-5) in their second-to-last home match of the season. Ontario has a 8-2-1-2 record against Bakersfield this season, and has won the last seven consecutive encounters against the Condors, outscoring the team by a 34-14 margin. Ontario is 48-27-10 all-time against Bakersfield since the two clubs began competition against each other in 2008-09. Today's game represents the final time these clubs will play each other in ECHL competition.

SHEEN HITS 100-POINT PLATEAU:

With an assist and two goals on Wednesday, Everett Sheen picked up his 100th career pro point against the Condors. The winger has spent all but 37 games of his pro career in Ontario, as he broke into the ECHL with the Reading Royals and played four games in the AHL with Providence in 2011-12.

CHRISTIE POISED TO TAKE SOLE POSSESSION OF SECOND PLACE IN ECHL WINS:

With 480 career wins behind an ECHL bench, Jason Christie's next win will allow him to pass John Brophy (Hampton Roads, 1989-2000 and Wheeling, 2001-03) for sole possession of second all-time in ECHL head coaching wins.

BLACKWATER APPROACHING CLUB SINGLE-SEASON GOALS MARK:

With five games remaining, and riding a four-game streak during which he has posted seven goals, Reign forward Judd Blackwater is only another five goals away from tying the single-season club record of 36 set by his good friend Colton Yellow Horn in 2012-13.
