Get ready for the Cardiac Kids

Game two of the division finals started off well for the Storm. They actually had excellent scoring chances in the first period but fell behind 1-0. Certainly the skating legs were beginning to return but some costly turnovers found the Storm down 2-0 early in the third period as Mississauga was able to make the best out of their scoring chances.

With five minutes remaining in the game Mississauga found themselves in penalty trouble and the Storm had a two-man advantage for 1:38. Right before the first penalty expired Jackie fired a slapshot past the Chief goalie to reduce the lead to one goal. However, with Bianca on the bench for an extra shooter, there was a turnover at the Mississauga blueline which lead to an empty net goal to close out the scoring.

This leads to another dramatic third game on Saturday. Once again the Storm will need to win both the game and overtime to move on the League Championships next weekend.
