Penalties cost Storm

It doesn’t matter how much talent you have if half that talent is sitting in the penalty box.

The Guelph Storm found that out Sunday as penalty after penalty played a major role in a 6-4 loss to the Kitchener Rangers at the Sleeman Centre.

The loss came on the heels of an embarrassing 8-1 loss in Owen Sound the night before.

Guelph led 4-2 heading into the third period Sunday, but the Rangers scored four unanswered goals — two on the power play — to pull out the win.

In total the Rangers had 11 power plays Sunday.

“Penalties,” simply defined Storm winger Taylor Beck, who returned to the lineup with a goal and an assist in defeat.

“There were some questionable ones, but we still took way too many. They had three five-on-threes and it’s going to cost you any time you do that. We’ve got to smarten up,” Beck said.

Even the winning coach, Rangers’ bench boss Steve Spott, pointed to penalties as the difference.
