With the Guelph Storm on centre stage, Garret Sparks stole the show Friday night at the Sleeman Centre.
The Guelph Storm netminder turned in a brilliant 44-save performance as the Storm rallied to down the Oshawa Generals 4-1 in a game broadcast across Canada on Sportsnet.
“It was a big game and I like to think I’m a big game goaltender,” Sparks said of his performance.
“I’ve had a couple of tough starts at home and it was in the back of my mind. I don’t like being this hot and this cold, but if this is the start of something good, I’ll take it.”
Sparks held the OHL’s second-highest scoring team (behind Guelph) to just one goal – a Boone Jenner screen shot on the power play in the second period – and kept his team in the game until they got their own offence going in the third.
