The Ontario Reign, meanwhile, will play a decisive seventh game in their ECHL Western Conference Final series Wednesday night after losing 2-1 to the Allen Americans at the Allen Event Center on Tuesday. Tristan King, who played at WHL-Medicine Hat with Emerson Etem, Linden Vey, Tyler Ennis and Tyler Bunz, was Ontario’s only goal scorer. The winner of that game will advance to face either South Carolina or Toledo, who will also play a Game 7 at the Huntington Center in Toledo Wednesday night. I mean, if you’re a Kings fan, you have to cheer for the Walleye, right?
