SAULT STE. MARIE, ON – The Guelph Storm extended their OHL win streak to six games as they downed the Soo Greyhounds 5-2 Friday night at the GFL Memorial Gardens.

Despite grabbing a two-goal lead in the first 10 minutes of the game, the Storm needed to score the final three goals of the game to claim the win with the final two goals being empty-netters in the final 73 seconds of the match.

The Storm led 2-0 at the end of the first period and 3-2 after the second thanks to Cooper Walker’s eventual game-winning goal with three seconds left in the period.

Ryan McGuire had two goals for Guelph while Charlie Paquette and Chandler Romeo also scored.

Assists were hard to come by as three of Guelph’s goals and one of Soo’s goals were unassisted markers. Jett Luchanko, Cam Allen, Gavin Grundner and Michael Buchinger each had an assist for the Storm.

Justin Cloutier and Brenden Sirizzotti had the goals for the hosts while Mark Duarte and Sirizzotti each had an assist.

The Greyhounds outshot the Storm 34-26 with half of their shots coming in the second period. Guelph was scoreless on four power plays, but did get a shorthanded goal while Soo was scoreless on two power plays.

Patrick Leaver had 32 saves for Guelph and Charlie Schenkel had 21 for the Greyhounds.

The Storm (30-24-4-1) remains in a tie for fourth in the Western Conference with the Saginaw Spirit (31-24-2-1) at 65 points apiece while the Owen Sound Attack (29-22-4-1) are sixth at 63, Flint Firebirds (28-26-4-1) are seventh at 61 and Kitchener Rangers (27-26-4-0) are eighth at 58. The Storm and Flint have played the same number of games and have nine games to go in their regular seasons. Saginaw has a game in hand, Kitchener has two games in hand and Owen Sound has three games in hand.

Guelph will clinch a playoff berth with two wins.

The Storm and Firebirds are to play Saturday at 7 p.m. at Flint’s Dort Financial Center and the Storm and Rangers are to play Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Kitchener Memorial Auditorium to complete a stretch of four consecutive road games.
