Storm looking for bounce back win against Omaha

Storm head coach Anthony Noreen talks to his players during the first period of Tri-City's 3-1 victory over Sioux City. (October 13, 2017) (KHGI)

Tri–City is no longer undefeated. The Storm boys 2 game winning streak to begin the season was snapped by Omaha on Sunday. The Lancers outshot Tri–City 24–10 in the first two periods on their way to a 5–0 victory.

Omaha scored two goals in the first five minutes of the first period to give themselves a nice cushion. The Storm was never able to get any kind of a rhythm going. They were 0/4 in power play situations, the first time this year Tri–City has not scored at least 1 goal on special teams. This contest serving as a good learning tool for the Storm early in the year.

"I thought they did a good job (Omaha) they worked hard, won a lot of battles, loose pucks," said head coach Anthony Noreen. "To tell the honest truth, the scoring chances in that game were 16-15 us. I think it was more of case of them generating chances and finishing on them and maybe getting a little bit higher chances. Where on the flip side we didn't. We hit the post or hit the net so we didn't just bear down enough. The message going into practice today is we got to finish. It's not enough to be in the right spots, you have to take advantage of those opportunities because you don't know when you might get another one."

The Storm will have a chance for some revenge as Omaha is back in Kearney on Friday. Puck drops at 7:35 pm
