ONTARIO, Calif. – Shawn Germain doesn’t get many chances to compare himself to Wayne Gretzky, so you’ll have to bear with the Reign defenseman for a moment.
“It wasn’t (Gretzky’s) forte to score on breakaways, and he had 1,000 goals in the NHL,” Germain said Friday after scoring on the first and only shootout attempt of his career – wearing a modified version of the Kings’ vintage black-and-gray jerseys, no less.
“Sometimes guys who are good on breakaways aren’t the guys you would think.”
