Hard pressed to convince me that the Storm deserved to win this one.
They were awful in the first period and didn't get the goaltending they needed to survive it. Nichols let in two softies and there were plenty of big players having small games last night.
Guelph did get better as the game went on, but Brandon Hope was rock solid.
A careless penalty by a tired Ben Harpur, who backhanded one over the glass, led to the power play that led to the winning goal.
Owen Sound's fifth goal, into the empty net, was scored from just over centre ice with an Owen Sound player clearly in the Storm zone.
One of those nights.
Kerby Rychel had two assists, Nick Ebert a goal and an assist in their Storm debuts.

Officials are wearing the initials "KB" on their helmets in honour of the late Ken Bodendistel, the longtime OHL officials supervisor and mentor from Guelph who passed away last week.
