Storm ground into the ice by Knights

By Tony Saxon, Guelph Mercury – A huge home game with big time playoff implications, but the Guelph Storm sure didn’t play like it Monday.

With the season’s finish line in sight and the team currently on the outside looking in at the post-season, the Storm turned in a passionless 3-1 loss to the London Knights before a strong Family Day crowd of 4,585.

They were outscored, outshot and outworked. Even the Storm players couldn’t figure it out.

“It was one of those nights. I don’t know what to say. I’m speechless, really,” Michael Latta said. “It was kind of a blah effort.”

Maybe you could put it down to an off game, until you realize the Storm has played poorly for seven straight periods over the weekend — beginning with the third period of Friday’s win over Sarnia and including Saturday’s awful 6-2 loss in Owen Sound.

Erie won Monday, so Guelph is two points back of Owen Sound (with two games in hand), seven back of Erie and eight behind Saginaw.
