Storm set for rematch against Des Moines

Posted 52 days ago ago by Kendall Grayson

Kearney, NE. – The Tri-City Storm host Des Moines tonight at the Viaero Center following a 4-2 loss against the Buccaneers last night in Urbandale, IA. The loss was the first this season for Tri-City, who look to remain perfect on home ice tonight. Last weekend, the Storm shutout the Buccaneers 3-0 in its home opener at the Viaero Center. Tri-City won a midweek matchup against Lincoln by a final score of 3-1, before suffering its first defeat of the season last night against Des Moines. Tickets to tonight’s game can be purchased through StormHockey.com, by calling (308) 338-8144, or by visiting the Viaero Center Box Office prior to tonight’s game.

 

Tri-City (5-1) looks to begin a new winning streak following last night’s loss to Des Moines. Previously, Tri-City set a new team record by winning its first five games to start the season. In last night’s game, the Storm got goals from Joe Molenaar and Jake Crespi, but fell to Des Moines by a final score of 4-2. Crespi now leads Tri-City with three goals scored on the year. Brad Morrissey recorded an assist on Crespi’s goal and tied Filip Forsmark for the team lead in points with 5. The Storm’s 29 penalty minutes in last night’s game was a season high for the team. Despite last night’s loss, the Tri-City offense continues to average more than three goals per game through six games played.

 

Des Moines (5-2) enters tonight’s game after tying up the season series with the Storm in a 4-2 win on home ice last night. The Bucs were led by USHL leading scorer Matt Brown, who notched his 7th & 8th goals of the season in the 3rd period. Goaltender Roman Durny made 25 saves on 27 shots and picked up his 4th win on the season. After giving up the first goal of the game in last night’s battle with the Storm, the Buccaneer offense netted four unanswered goals. Des Moines registered 35 shots on goal in last night’s game, setting a new season high. The game for Des Moines is the final of the weekend, while Tri-City will host Omaha tomorrow at 5:05pm in its fourth game of the week, and third in three days.

 

Tonight’s game is set to begin at 7:05pm CT, and will be streamed live on HockeyTV, and Storm Radio. HockeyTV is a subscription based service that carries all Storm home and away games throughout the season. Storm Radio is the new audio broadcast home for Tri-City Storm hockey and can be accessed through Mixlr, StormHockey.com, or by downloading the official Tri-City Storm Mobile App. The broadcast will begin twenty minutes prior to the advertised game start time.
