Storm Pull Away From Eagles 6-1

For two periods the Kamloops Storm looked like they were playing their third game in three nights. The third period proved that there would be no excuses as the Storm looked fresh and fast in scoring 3 times to break open a tight game and cruise to a 6-1 win over the Sicamous Eagles in KIJHL action Sunday afternoon. The Eagles deserved a better fate trailing 3-1 after two periods despite outshooting the home team 23-22 and at times looking like the better team. After Dmitry Dyshin scored his second of the year 10 seconds in to the second period to tie the game at 1-1 the Storm scored 5 unanswered goals to get the win. Cody Creasy was strong once again stopping 33 of 34 shots in goal including a spectacular save in the third in giving his team a chance to win the game. The Storm fired 41 shots on Eagle goalie Gage Reimer including 19 in the third period. Leading scorer Zak Anderson had two goals while Jayden Russell and Ty Horner had a goal and an assist each. Alek Erichuk and Peyton Kelly had 3 assists each. The Storm get 5 out of 6 points this weekend and end their pre-Christmas schedule at 18-4-2-1 good for 39 points and first place in the Doug Birks Division 4 points ahead of the Revelstoke Grizzlies.
