NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. – One more time.

James Reimer stopped 27 shots and Jeff Corey (pictured) scored two goals to lead South Carolina past Alaska, 5-0, in Game 4 of the Kelly Cup Finals on Friday night before a crowd of 5,701 at the North Charleston Coliseum.

The Stingrays lead the best-of-seven series, 3-1, and can capture the franchise’s third Kelly Cup title Saturday with a victory in Game 5 at the North Charleston Coliseum. The Stingrays would be the first team in ECHL history to capture three Kelly Cup titles. Hampton Roads won three ECHL championships — two Riley Cups and one Kelly Cup.

“We’re one win away from winning the Kelly Cup, but the toughest game of all is the one when you’re trying to eliminate the other team,” said Stingrays coach Jared Bednar. “We know Alaska is going to come out with everything they’ve got (tonight) and we’ve got to be ready and focused if we’re going to wrap up this series. I know it’s going to be a hard-fought, close game. We’ve got to be on top of our game if we want to win.”
