Thunder-Reign, Game 4, 1st period recap

From Record stringer George Alfano in Ontario.

Ontario leads 1-0 after one period in Game 4. Yasin Cisse skated down the right side and slid a pass for Chris Crane, who put it in the net at 2:30 of the first period. The line of Cisse, Crane and Tyler Gron has played very well tonight, although Stockton contained them after the first goal.

The Reign look much sharper than they did in Game 3, and aren’t making as many mistakes in their defensive end. Stockton has been satisfactory on defense, but hasn’t been able to generate much offense.

Jussi Olkinuora replaces J. P. Anderson as the Ontario Reign goaltender for Game 4. Olkinuora allowed five goals in Stockton’s 5-3 victory in Game 2.

            The Thunder are in a good position. Let’s see how they come out in the second period.
