Reign Mount Miraculous Comeback Over Malmo


Recommended Posts

When the Malmo Nighthawks jumped out to a 3-0 lead early in the second period of yesterday's game against the Riga Reign, few could have expected what would come next.

The Reign have got off to a solid start to S79, but the free-scoring Nighthawks, who won 9 of their opening 11 games, scoring more 56 goals in the process, have been the talk of the league.


However, the Reign rallied back to mount a miraculous comeback, scoring twice in the second half of the second period before netting two goals in the third. Rookie Anze Miklavz scored the winner with just 42 seconds left to play in regulation.


For Riga Reign defenceman Jan Hlozek, the win over the Nighthawks had personal significance, given his long-standing feud with Malmo's Druss Deathwalker @animal74


"It was an amazing performance by the boys to get us back into this game. We could have collapsed after conceding those two goals in the first minute of the second, but the coach called a timeout, we regrouped, and we got the win," Hlozek said after the game.


"Look, the team comes first, but it was funny to see how quiet Deathwalker was after this game. He looked a little embarrassed and rushed off the ice with his tail between his legs. Funny how that happens with the guys that talk the loudest isn't it?" the Czech blueliner added.
