Game 3

March 8th, 2014              

    While the second game of the Pepsi Challenge started out close and then got away from the Storm, this game started in the exact opposite manner. The Storm looked extremely sluggish at the opening faceoff, and surrendered four quick and way too easy goals, all within the first five minutes of action. From there on out the remainder of the game was what one would expect from a hockey game - back and forth action with some good goaltending on each end and some quality play by everyone involved. After giving up those early goals, the Storm held the Flags scoreless for the second period before finally giving up one last goal late in the third. Like he has all weekend, Drew played extremely well today. Despite picking up a penalty for high sticking, he provided a spark for the team, got a couple of quality scoring chances, and was all over the ice pressuring the puck and making a few steals along the way.

    Regardless of the outcome of today's game and the entire season, Tara & I are extremely proud of Drew and all that he has accomplished this season. We are looking forward to bigger and better things next season and beyond!
