HENDERSON, N.V. – The Henderson Silver Knights will take on the Ontario Reign in a standalone contest at Toyota Arena. Henderson will look to gain some points in the Pacific Division standings after a split series with the Iowa Wild. The Silver Knights are currently tied with the Bakersfield Condors for seventh in the division and sit just two points behind the Reign, who have lost four straight games. Puck drop is set for 7 p.m. PT.
HEADING BACK HUNGRY
After dropping their final game prior to the All-Star break, the Silver Knights are eager to get back in the win column after some much-needed rest.
“I definitely think [the break] is good for your body and mental game,” said forward Gage Quinney, who had four points (1G, 3A) in the team’s last five games before the break. “I think the way that we ended, we weren’t too happy with going into the break, so I think the reset was good for everyone. We’re excited to get back.”
“Obviously, we’re disappointed with how Saturday night ended,” echoed Head Coach Ryan Craig. “I thought it was two points that were lost, but there’s nothing we can do about that now. We’re ready to move forward with a big game in Ontario tonight.”
