The Royals trailed 4-2 entering the third period, but a four-goal outburst in the final frame rallied Reading past Fort Wayne Friday night.

Ian O'Connor, Yannick Tifu, Denny Urban and Joel Champagne all scored goals in the third period to lift the Royals to a 4-0 start in December.

The Royals have a chance to make that 5-0 Saturday night when they welcome Orlando to town.
