Storm Nation returns for another season

The Storm had their first exhibition game today against the Leaside Wildcats at Moss Park arena. Moss Park is one tough neighbourhood - even the squirrels in the park were carrying knives for protection.

The game didn't go that well either as the Storm fell 4-2. Everyone was showing their rust from goal to forward. There were missed passes, pucks over skated and misfired shots. The most embarrassing play had to be the defenseman carrying the puck from behind the net who fell leading to a turnover and Leaside goal. However, there were some good work out there as well. The line of Alicia, Caitlin and Madeleine L was clicking right from the start of the game. Kailee had a strong game switching from the wing to centre. Genevieve had some excellent scoring chances.

The first goal was scored by Alex on a shot fired from the point that went through a few legs including the Wildcat goalie. The other Storm goal was scored by Phyllis late in the game on a powerplay.

On a sad note was the news that Coach Bruce will be out of action for a little while. Bruce suffered a mild heart attack earlier in the week and is scheduled for some surgery this coming week. We all wish you a speedy and full recovery.
