Staying Disciplined – Tonight’s game marked the first time in the franchise’s 12-year history that the club did not take a penalty.

 

Mr. Teddy Bear – With the Teddy Bear Toss goal tonight, Royals’ forward Eric Florchuk has scored in two consecutive years. Florchuk becomes the second Royal to record back-to-back teddy goals after Austin Carroll in 2012 and 2013.
