Posted 32 days ago ago by Kendall Grayson

Ralston, NE. – The Tri-City Storm begin a three game weekend tonight in a road matchup with the Omaha Lancers. Tonight’s game between the Storm and the Lancers will be the 5th meeting between the two teams this season. Each team has picked up two wins in the first four games of the season series. The Storm will return home for “Military Appreciation Night” tomorrow for a matchup with the Sioux Falls Stampede, before playing a road game against the Lincoln Stars on Sunday to close out the weekend. Tonight’s game is set to begin at 7:35pm.

 

Tri-City (8-3-1-0) enters tonight’s game after dropping back to back games for the first time this season. The Storm dropped a 4-2 decision to the Lancers on Tuesday at the Viaero Center in the fourth matchup between the two teams in the 2018-2019 regular season. Colton Kalezic and Filip Forsmark scored goals for Tri-City in the loss. With an assist on the Storm’s first goal of the night, defenseman Zac Jones moved into the team lead for most points with eight on the season. Jones is the team leader with seven assists, and Jake Crespi currently leads Tri-City in goals with four scored on the year. Despite the loss on Tuesday night, Tri-City is only one point back of 1st place in the Western Conference standings. Tri-City enters tonight’s game as the 4th place team in the Western Conference standings, but could move into 1st place with a win tonight.

 

Omaha (5-6-0-1) seeks its first win on home ice against the Storm this season. In the previous four games of the season series, the road team has won both games. Tri-City picked up wins at Ralston Arena on October 6th & 26th, and Omaha recorded two wins at the Viaero Center on October 21st and November 2nd. On Tuesday, Lancers goaltender Akira Schmid picked up his 1st career USHL win in his 2nd career game. Schmid is one of five goaltenders to play for Omaha to this point in the regular season. Despite missing six games due to injury, Brendan Furry is tied for the team lead in goals (4), assists (7), and is the outright leader with 11 points on the year. Furry netted two goals against the Storm on Tuesday, with teammates Ryan Save and Bryce Brodzinski netting the other two Lancers goals.
