Unfortunately the London Knights did most of their damage in that defensive black hole, scoring three times on their way to defeating the Storm 4-3.
“We were puck-staring,” Storm coach Jason Brooks said of the loss, which drops Guelph’s record to 7-4-0-1 on the season. London improved to 10-4.
“We got caught up on some bad defensive stuff early on. We were losing our men. Not covering the slot. Standing still,” Brooks said.
Taylor Beck had given Guelph a 1-0 lead at 5:29 of the first when he redirected an Adam Comrie centering pass on the rush.
Then the Knights went o work. Jared Knight beat Cody St. Jacques twice in a span of 2:29 then Michael MacDonald scored his first Ontario Hockey League goal at 18:38 to make it 3-1 after 20 minutes.
After a scoreless second period, the Storm came on in the third.
J.P. Labardo got his first of the year at 2:28 when his pass attempt deflected past London goaltender Michael Hutchinson.
