NOTES

Pregame:
 
- Adin Hill leads the team out of the tunnel and onto the ice in Ontario. He'll be making his fourth start of the season against the Reign tonight. He is 3-0-0-0 in his previous three encounters with the Kings' affiliate.
 
- Conor Garland returns to the lineup tonight; he is playing to the left of Ryan MacInnis and Stefan Fournier on the fourth line.
 
- Branden Troock and Mitch Moroz are the two forwards out tonight; Brandon Burlon is out.
 
- Austin Lotz has dressed for his first-career AHL game. He will be serving as Hill's back-up tonight.
 
First Period:
 
- After Anthony Duclair was shut down on a point-blank chance, Laurent Dauphin follows the play and buries the loose rebound to give the Roadrunners a 1-0 lead just over five minutes in.
 
- Dauphin's goal gave the Roadrunners their first lead in a game since February 3, a 245:26 minute span.
 
- Mike Amadio ties up the game just past the midway point of the first on what arguably could be the softest goal Adin Hill has allowed this season.
 
- Eric Selleck and Kurtis MacDermid drop the mits. 
 
- The teams finish the opening period tied in shots (11) and goals (1). A rather uneventful frame. 
 
Second Period:
 
- Roadrunners can't convert on a power play early in the period. Now 0-2 on the man advantage.
 
- Roadrunners third power play their most productive, but again fail to find the back of the net.
 
- Dakota Mermis saves a goal with just over five minutes left in the frame, sliding and blocking a back-door chance with Adin Hill out of position.
 
- Brett Sutter backhands a shorthanded goal past Adin Hill with 16 seconds left in the period.
 
Third Period:
 
- The Roadrunners will begin the period with 1:16 minutes left on a power play.
 
- Tucson comes out hot, but can't convert on carry-over power play. They've outshot the Reign 5-0 through the first three minutes of the period.
 
- Dakota Mermis fires a shot that looks to have gone in and caromed out. Immediately waved off, not reviewed by the officials.
 
- Jonny Brodzinski gives Ontario a two-goal lead with just over six minutes left to play moments after Adin Hill robs Zach Leslie with a gorgeous glove save.
 
- Ontario buries an empty-net goal with 1:40 to play.
