ONTARIO, Calif. - Mario Lamoureux scored two goals, and the Ontario Reign evened up their ECHL Western Conference semifinal series with a 5-0 shutout of the Idaho Steelheads in Game 2 on Saturday night.
Lamoureux, Brad Calla and Cameron Burt scored in the second period to give the second-seeded Reign the advantage, then Everett Sheen and Lamoureux scored 2 minutes, 26 seconds apart in the middle of the third.

Idaho managed just 19 shots, all saved by Jean-Francois Berube, and was 0-for-4 on the power play, including a 5-on-3 in the third period.
