It went the distance, but Calgary picked up the two points.
The Wranglers (11-1-1) recorded their fifth-straight win with a 5-4 shootout victory over the Ontario Reign at the Toyota Center on Friday night.
Rory Kerins added a goal and an assist – and notched the shootout winner – while Cole Schwindt added a solo tally, and Ben Jones and Clark Bishop both scored their fourth goals of the season.
Jones now has nine points (3g,6a) on his current six-game point streak.
Dustin Wolf (6-1-0-1) was in between the pipes for the Wranglers for his first start since being assigned from the Flames, turning aside 20 shots for his sixth win.
It was an evenly matched opening frame, but the Reign took the lead at 10:55.
Parked in front of the Wranglers net, Akil Thomas took a pass from Alex Turcotte and whipped a pass by Wolf. 1-0.
The lead wouldn’t last long, however.
With the Wranglers on the powerplay, Jonathan Aspirot tossed a shot on net and Kerins got his stick on it in the high slot, redirecting the puck past netminder David Rittich – who last played in the AHL in 2017-18 when he was a member of the Stockton Heat.
