Reign’s Spirits Up Following Big Win Over Warsaw


Recommended Posts

It’s fair to say that the Riga Reign have flattered to deceive over the past week. At the start of the season, the Reign looked like they could be a contender to top the European Conference along with the Malmo Nighthawks, although the Latvian club’s recent form has seen them drop behind not just Malmo, but also the Warsaw Predators and HC Davos Dynamo over the last seven days.


There have been some signs of friction within the camp, but the elation was palpable on Friday, after the Reign defeated second-place Warsaw Predators 6-2 in a dominant display.


The team’s designated backup Matthew A Sovick Jr had a game to remember, stopping 57 of 59 shots, but many of the team’s top producers, include Cabe McJake and Artair McCloud stepped up to the plate with multi-point nights.


Czech defenceman Jan Hlozek, who had three assists in the game, said that getting a big win over a close rival was vital if the Reign wanted to guarantee their place in the playoffs.


“It’s been a tough go of it recently. We’ve struggled with consistency and playing our best game each and every night. We need to take the positives from this game as we are gunning for a playoff spot. We have all the tools we need to win, now it’s on us players to show it,” he said in a media scrum.
