Four-game losing skid snapped with win

By Tony Saxon, Guelph Mercury – Confidence breeds creativity and the Guelph Storm had plenty of both Saturday night.

Guelph snapped its four-game losing streak with a thoroughly entertaining 7-4 win over the Kitchener Rangers at the Sleeman Centre.

Coming off a four-goal rally in the third period to salvage a point Friday night against Erie, the Storm showed more energy and offensive flair than they have for some time.

“Last night’s comeback was a big thing before the game tonight. We wanted to concentrate on bringing that into this game,” said the Storm’s Peter Holland, who had four assists on the night.

“It’s almost like you have a little more mojo going when you have confidence. You’re willing to try things,” Holland said.

The line of Holland, Taylor Beck and Matt Sisca combined for 10 points. Beck had the hat trick and Sisca had a goal and two assists.

Also scoring for the Storm were Tyler Carroll, J.P. Labardo, Michael Latta and Cody McNaughton. Blueliner Sam Lofquist chipped in with three assists.

Even the power play looked rejuvenated, scoring three times.

“Whenever you have confidence you can see the ice better, see linemates better and you’re not afraid to try some things,” Beck said.

“We knew we had the group of guys to play like this. It was just a matter of time.”
