Gabby comes through again

With just over 3 minutes left in the game, Gabby slips a backhand shot past the Lightning goalie for a powerplay goal to give the Storm a lead for the first time in the game. It was Gabby's 6th goal in the past 4 games. It wasn't enough as the Storm gave up a goal just 20 seconds later and finished the game at a 1-1 draw. It was a tough battle and the tie was only possible because of a series of big saves by Bianca. She made several key kick saves with her right pad as the Storm stumbled slightly in the second period. With just 2 minutes remaining Alexa was imprinted into the boards giving the Storm a powerplay. Unfortunately they were unable to get the lead back. A surprise guest was former Storm player Jackie in from Montreal.
