LAS VEGAS, NV The Ontario Reign (21-8-1-1), defending Pacific Division Champions and affiliate of the NHLs 2012 Stanley Cup Champion Los Angeles Kings, fell in the Indoor Winter Classic to the Las Vegas Wranglers (14-13-1-3) in a close 3-2 match before 3,991 at Orleans Arena where fake snow fell from the rafters for the game. The Wranglers lit the lamp first as Andrew Sarauer sent a shot toward JF Berube. The Reign goaltender almost stopped it but the puck found its way under Berubes pads. The two teams kept up the end-to-end play throughout the frame. The Reign got their stride in the second period when Kyle Clifford tied the game 1-1 for his fourth tally in a Reign uniform. He beat the Wranglers by poking it past Joe Fallon for the equalizer. Brock Sheahan and Brady Calla assisted the play. With just 23 seconds left in the second frame, Brock Sheahan struck again this time scoring the Reigns get-ahead goal with a one-timer from the slot. The defenseman was set up by forward Jason Beeman and fellow blue liner Justin Pender. Las Vegas matched Ontarios energy in the third period scoring two to tie and eventually win the game. The score was knotted at 2 when Eric Lampe received a hard pass from the blue line and shot it past Berubes blocker side. With 3:54 left in regulation Josh Lunden scored the game-winner for the Wranglers. He picked up a feed from Sarauer as he came in quick on Berubes right side. Judd Blackwater also earned a point on the goal. Fallon earned the win stopping 16 of 18 shots while Berube took the loss with the 19 saves on 22 shots.
