Probably not the result the Storm were hoping for this weekend.
A tough few days for the Storm with three games in three nights, securing just two points in a 5-2 win over Peterborough on Friday. All seven goals in the game came at five-on-five.
Weathering the Storm
Owen Sound and Kitchener did a good job of weathering the Storm this weekend. The Attack jumped out to a big 7-1 lead. Guelph almost managed to come back, but ultimately came up just short in a 7-5 loss. Both teams were 2-for-3 on the power play.
Sunday afternoon was also a close contest. Kitchener came in hot, with points in five straight games, and kept the Storm on their toes all game. Although it was a hard-fought battle, Guelph came away with another loss, 2-1. Guelph’s lone goal came on the power play.

The H-U-G line of Cam Hillis, Eric Uba, and Pavel Gogolev lead the way for the Storm with a combined 17 points. Hillis (2-3—5), Uba (2-3—5), and Gogolev (2-5–7), continued on their hot streak. This line continues to look dangerous.
Guelph goaltender, Nico Daws captured gold with Team Canada on Sunday at the World Junior Championship in Ostrava, Czech Republic.

According to reports, Storm General Manager and Head Coach George Burnett was not behind the bench for Saturday’s game against Owen Sound. He was out ‘scouting’.
The trade deadline is this week, and Guelph should be pretty busy. Keep an eye out on Twitter this week to see what’s going down and when. This time next week, this team could look a lot different.
Up next, @ Ottawa on Friday and @ Kingston on Saturday.
