From a Reading Royals press release:
The Reading Royals of the ECHL, affiliate of the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League and the Hershey Bears of the American Hockey League, today announced the forward Dustin Gazley has been loaned from the Bears to the Royals.
What do you do that is unique to the playoffs? Any particular superstition? Anything you'd like to see the Komets try for the crowd, maybe besides wearing Orange? If I get enough good ideas, I may use them in a story.
I wouldn't want any part of Zdeno Chara, either. I'd kill to know what if anything the ref was saying there.
Reading has scored three goals against Ben Meisner so far and all three have been absolutely pefect shots after teh Royals have gotten around Komets defenseman. He came out here to challenge George Blandina and cut the angle, but Blandina hit the five-hole for the deciding goal.
Reading threw everything at theKomets during the first period, hitting everything in sight, and outshot theKomets 11-4. Komets are still tied 11 thanks to a steal from Darren Clarke that Shawn Szydlowski buried with a wrist shot ajgainst Riley Gill.
2013 ECHL Playoff MVP Riley Gill starts for the Royals in net with Kevin Walrod (Komets training camp) playing for Greg Wolfe. Same lineup for the Komets. Brett Sheva is the referee.
Could be an interesting time for Bob Chase tonight as the scoreboard in Santander Arena is currently blocked by a curtain from last night's concert. Reading's excellent radio boradcaster and PR person Mark Thompson said the areana personnel are working on the problem. Right now we can't see anything of the scoreboard.
From an ECHL press release:
Shawn Szydlowski's game-winning goal with 8.1 seconds left.
Same lineup for the Komets as last time except Jace Coyle is in for Justin Seftin. Ben Meisner starts in goal. Brandon Anderson for the Royals. Referee is Andrew Wilk. Komets are confident, very businesslike.
