Tri-City (6-1) looks to close out a three game weekend with a win against in state rival Omaha tonight at the Viaero Center. The Storm enter today’s game as the 1st place team in the Western Conference standings.

Last night, Tri-City scored a season high three power play goals in a 6-2 home win over Des Moines. The six goals scored by Colby Ambrosio, Elias Rosen, Connor McMenamin, Joe Molenaar, and Brad Morrissey was also a season high for the Storm offense. Joe Molenaar has now scored in back to back games after netting his 1st career goal Friday night in Tri-City’s 4-2 road loss to Des Moines. The goal scored by Elias Rosen was the 1st of his career, and Colby Ambrosio’s two power play goals marked his first multi goal game with the Storm. Jake Barczewski picked up the win in goal last night, improving to 2-0 on the 2018-2019 season. Brad Morrissey leads the team with seven points on the year, and also is tied for the team lead in assists with Filip Formsark. Both Forsmark and Morrissey have notched five assists through the Storm’s first seven games. Jake Crespi and Colby Ambrosio lead Tri-City with three goals on the year.
