Storm survives a scary 2nd to lose in 3rd

This time they didn't push us around. We pushed them around and gave them a good scare. We even took the lead in the second period. A period where we took 5 penalties and had to kill off 5 on 3 situations twice. Speaking of which did that ref have eyes in the back of his helmet? I have no clue whether Phyllis came out of the box 1 second early. But that ref must be really good because he was able to watch the play in our end, the clock on the opposite end of the rink and Phyllis in the penalty box all at once. The NHL will be knocking on your door real soon. They will be looking for a replacement for Kerry Fraser when he retires at the end of the season. Every Maple Leaf fan remembers his best call (right here).

Well our girls really crashed the net against a very large Dolphin team. They not only have the twin towers but it looked like they Big Bird and Snuffleupagus suited up in Dolphin jerseys. We actually out shot Etobicoke 18-5. We took the lead on a pretty nice play while on the power play. Off the faceoff, Gabby gets the puck back to Amanda on the point who evades a checker to wire a shot for the top corner that went off the goalie's trapper into the net. It was the only mistake she made. In the third period, Etobicoke was able to score two goals on a couple of great plays from behind the net into the slot. In both cases, Bianca had no chance. She had her third straight strong game. Glad to see her back in form. With the goalie pulled late the game, we came close to getting the tying goal. Kailee missed the net on a slapper off a faceoff and later Alexa couldn't slip the puck by the goalie at the side of the net.
