Dubuque, IA – The Tri-City Storm tied a team record for most wins in a regular season tonight following a 4-2 road defeat of the Dubuque Fighting Saints.

In addition to tying the organization’s regular season win record, the Storm also notched their 8th consecutive win in tonight’s game. The Tri-City Storm hit the road next weekend for two games at the Tyson Events Center in Sioux City, IA against the Sioux City Musketeers. For the first time this season, Tri-City enters a weekend slate of games with an opportunity to clinch the Anderson Cup.
