It was the kind of performance that leads to post-game meetings.

So that’s exactly what the Guelph Storm did following a lousy performance at the Sleeman Centre Friday night that saw them play about 10 minutes of good hockey in a 5-2 loss to the Kitchener Rangers.

First coach George Burnett held court. After he left the dressing room, the players spent  15 minutes talking among themselves.

Burnett was the first to emerge and take the blame for the loss.

“It’s my responsibility to get these guys ready to play and clearly they’re not, so that’s on me,” the Storm coach said. “This is on me. I’m the leader and I’ve got to make sure I’ve got this group ready to go.”

Kitchener jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first period and it could have been four had a goal not been called back for a close offside call.
