    The way these playoff games are set up it really appears as though Drew and his '05 Storm teammates have a great chance to secure their first victory of the year. This game did not get off to a great start, as the Suburban Stars managed to open up the scoring in the first period. Thankfully the Storm team "stormed" back to tie the game at a goal apiece minutes later. That score carried over all the way into the third period, despite some good scoring chances for each team. Things took a turn for the worse at the beginning of the third period, as the Stars scored two quick goals that almost took the wind out of the Storm team's sails. The first goal came when a defender fell down, leaving the attacking Star player in a one on one situation with the goalie, and he managed to take advantage of it and find the back of the net. The second goal of the period came on a play where our goalie thought that he had the puck covered, only to have the puck actually be sitting out in front of his glove. The referees saw it, and so did the Stars players who wound up knocking it into the net to provide a two goal cushion. The Storm players didn't give up, though, and they fought hard to get back in the game. They had some good chances, and managed to find the back of the net to make it a 3-2 game with time left to tie it up. Unfortunately they weren't able to complete the comeback, losing a close battle in heartbreaking fashion.
