Alex drops out of the race for the Lady Byng Trophy

With 1:31 remaining in the second period tonight against Mississauga the unthinkable happened. Alex got a penalty. I'm not kidding! The game was stopped and the on-ice officials skated to the Storm bench to confirm that 88 was actually Alex and not some call up. And with that indiscretion, a little obstruction against 15 on the Chiefs and her clean record gone for good. I saw a tear form in the corner of Coach Bruce's eye though he will never admit that it happened.

As far as the game goes, well we lost 4-2. Pez honours went to Caitlin for a one-timer goal off a beautiful feed from Maddie L. while on the powerplay. Kailee fired a rebound off a shot by Amanda for the Storms' other goal.
