Ontario hosts Colorado in 25th Game 7 in ECHL history
The Ontario Reign host the Colorado Eagles tonight at 7 p.m. PT in Game 7 of their Pacific Division Semifinals series. It marks just the 25th Game 7 in the ECHL's 27-year history, and the first since 2013.
Both teams are seeking their first-ever win in a Game 7.
Ontario is playing its second Game 7 in club history. The Reign fell to Stockton 5-4 in Game 7 of the 2009 Pacific Division Semifinals while Colorado is making its first appearance in a Game 7 in its four-year ECHL history.
Ontario head coach Jason Christie has coached in one previous Game 7 with Peoria, falling to Trenton 4-3 in the 2001 Northern Conference Finals.
The Reign forced the decisive game with a 4-1 win last night, getting a pair of goals from both Judd Blackwater and Matt Register.
The home team is 16-8 all-time in ECHL Game 7's, and has won 12 of the last 18. Four times a Game 7 has gone to overtime, with three of those being decided in double overtime. The home team has won each of the Game 7's decided in two overtimes, with the road team winning the lone Game 7 to end in one overtime.
