Storm faceoff against rival Stars in Lincoln

Posted 25 days ago ago by Kendall Grayson

Lincoln, NE. – The Tri-City Storm visit the Ice Box in Lincoln tonight for the season’s fourth meeting between the Storm and Stars. Tri-City has won two of its previous three games against the Stars this season and looks to keep momentum going after a 2-1 road win over 1st place Waterloo last Friday night. Puck drop is scheduled for 7:05pm.

 

Tri-City (11-4-1-0) enters tonight’s game in 4th place in the USHL’s Western Conference standings with 23 points but could take over 1st place in the Conference standings and pull within one point of 1st place in the league standings with a win over in state rival Lincoln tonight. Newly named Captains Connor McMenamin and Ronnie Attard scored the Storm’s goals Friday night in Waterloo and Isaiah Saville made 33 saves in the Storm’s win. The Storm’s specialty teams have been strong this season and are both ranked in the top half of the league. Tri-City’s power play is currently 8th best in the USHL at 21.0%, and the Storms penalty kill is 4th best in the league at 82.8%. Last Friday, Tri-City went 6 for 6 on the penalty kill, holding the leagues best powerplay off the scoreboard in the Storm’s 2-1 win over Waterloo. Ian Murphy leads Tri-City with 5 goals through 16 games played, and Zac Jones leads the team in assists with 10 on the year.

 

Lincoln (5-7-3-1) won its only meeting of the season against Tri-City the last time the two teams met on November 11th. The 3-0 shutout of the Storm marked the 1st time all season Tri-City was held off the scoreboard in a game. The Stars are currently last place in the Western Conference standings and 16th place in the league standings. Shane Pinto, Caleb Rule, and Josiah Slavin are Lincoln’s scoring leaders entering tonight’s game with each player over the 5 goal mark on the year. Pinto leads the Stars with 9 goals, and Slavin leads the team with 11 assists on the season. Despite being near the bottom of the league standings, the Stars have proved to be a very good home team this season with a record of 4-2-2-1 when playing at the Ice Box this season. The Stars will host the Storm again on Saturday night.
