Storm stay alive

With our leading scorer out with a bad wing and our backs against the wall, the Storm came out swinging. We played Storm hockey tonight. Short shifts, fast pace and tough along the boards. Amanda jumped up to take Gabby's spot in on right wing and scored a fabulous goal on a wrap around. The Dolphins battled back to take a 2-1 lead into the third period. Staring at elimination just 12 minutes away we took it to the Dolphins and tied the game up on a goal by Genevieve off a rebound following a great scoring chance by Alex(the scorer's version). For those who saw Alex's shot go in, well you aren't blind (please no comments about the refs). The Dolphins put on pressure late in the game but couldn't beat Paolina and the game ended 2-2.

This sets up a possible thriller on Sunday when the Storm must win the game and then beat the Dolphins in overtime. It happened last year so why not this season?
