Storm rising as a great show shuts out Dundee
MANCHESTER Storm produced an impressive all-round performance to shutout Dundee Stars 3-0.
An outstanding first period from the hosts nearly saw them score on their very first venture into the Stars zone.
However, a fine save from Leclerc kept things level.
Less than a minute later, Storm would find themselves ahead as a wrist shot from Gagnon somehow managed to evade everybody on the ice.
This slender advantage was eventually doubled through the in-form Hughesman, who was on hand to lift the puck into the Stars goal.
A 2-0 scoreline, in favour of the Storm, would remain until the first intermission.
The middle stanza was a more evenly contested twenty minutes, as both sides spurned multiple goal scoring chances in front of goal.
This wastefulness continued for the vast majority of the period until playmaker, Aulin converted clinically on the one-on-one.
The initial stages of the final period were largely dominated by the Stars.
Although, the visitors could not find a way to solve Matt Ginn in the Storm goal.
The Canadian shot stopper turned aside all 33 shots on goal.
Sunday’s match night in Coventry saw the Storm put out the Blaze 4-1.
The thrilling game saw goals from Captain Ehrhardt, Puskarich (two) and Ulmer.
