GUELPH – Three consecutive goals powered the Guelph Storm to a 3-2 victory over the Oshawa Generals in Ontario Hockey League play Sunday at the Sleeman Centre.

Luca Marrelli and Rasmus Kumpulainen scored power-play goals for Oshawa with Dylan Roobroeck, Matthew Buckley and Calum Ritchie getting one assist apiece.

The Storm outshot the Generals 33-29 in the game. Guelph had a 16-4 advantage in shots in the second period while Oshawa outshot the locals 13-4 in the third.

Both teams had six power plays, Oshawa scoring on two of theirs and Guelph netting one power-play marker.

Damian Slavik had 27 saves for the Storm while former Storm netminder Jacob Oster had 30 saves for Oshawa.

Next up for the Storm is a game against the Kitchener Rangers Tuesday at Kitchener’s Memorial Auditorium complex. Game time is 7 p.m.
