ECHL report: Ontario win puts idle Aces second in West

Doyle Woody,Adn Staff

While the Alaska Aces take this break in the ECHL schedule that feels like eternity -- OK, actually only something like 10 days between tilts -- they slipped into second place in the Western Conference tonight.

Ontario's 2-1 win over Bakersfield improved the Reign to 10-1-4, good for 24 points.

The idle Aces, who next play Wednesday at Colorado to open an eight-game road trip, are 11-3-0 for 22 points.

Ontario, obviously, has played one more game than Alaska.
