Storm hits a tough stretch

By Tony Saxon, Guelph Mercury

Thing aren’t coming quite as easy for the Guelph Storm these days.

After a three-week stretch where the team could do no wrong, the Storm has now lost four of its past six games.

The latest setback came Sunday, a 3-0 loss to the London Knights at the Sleeman Centre where two of the Knights goals came with Storm goaltender Garret Sparks pulled for the extra attacker.

Saturday the Storm was hammered 9-4 by the Niagara IceDogs in St. Catharine’s.

“Offence is a funny thing. You can go through spots where nobody can miss and then you can go through spots where you struggle,” Storm coach Scott Walker said.

He said having four key players out of the lineup obviously has a ripple effect.

“Not to make excuses, but when you have a flow going and guys are comfortable, then you have to start moving guys around and juggling lines, it can change the way guys think,” Walker said.

Overall Walker was happy with the way his team played Sunday, in particular that Guelph held London to just 29 shots on the afternoon – 15 over the first two periods.
