Grande Prairie came out in droves to fill the rink for the Grande Prairie Storm's Annual Pink in the Rink event for breast cancer awareness, and they were rewarded with a textbook shutout win from the home team. Osepchuk (2) opened up the scoring from Tenkoppel and Bierd, on a net-front tip at 2:15 in the first period. the Storm would clamp down on their own zone for the rest of the period, holding a 1-0 lead and only allowing 5 shots. The Canucks would spend almost 12 minutes of the second period on the PK, and the Storm would add 2 more tallies at even strength: Okabe (11) from Webb and Nordstrom, and Blake (2) from Boucher. The Canucks would only muster 2 shots in the second period, for a Storm lead in shots 22-7 at the second intermission. Okabe (12) would add the final nail in the coffin from Webb at 3:09 in the third period. The Storm would allow only 5 more shots in the 3rd period, and would cruise to a 4-0 win, allowing only 12 shots on the evening.
On the heels of Lane's first AJHL shutout, the Storm take on the Drumheller Dragons tomorrow night at 7:30pm here at Revolution Place.
