The Stockton Thunder have taken a 2-0 lead over the Ontario Reign in the first round of the ECHL playoffs. Jeremy Langlois, an undrafted free agent who was traded to the Bridgeport Sound Tigers in March, leads the ECHL in playoff scoring with seven points (four goals, three assists) in two games for the Thunder. Langlois and Joey Martin each had a goal and two assists in Friday’s 3-1 win over the Reign, while Ryan Hayes scored the insurance goal in the third period. Langlois took over game two of the series, a 5-3 win for Stockton, scoring a hat trick en route to a four-point night. Martin, Hayes and Matt Bergland each had a pair of assists in game two, while Andrew Clark netted a goal and an assist. The trio of Langlois, Martin and Clark has combined for 15 points in the first two games of the series. Despite finishing as the seventh seed, Stockton opened the series at home due to a scheduling conflict at Ontario’s Citizens Business Bank Arena. Because of the scheduling conflict, games three, four, six* and seven* will be played in Ontario.
