Sellan Scores 50th Career Point, Otters Fall in Guelph
Guelph, Ontario - No rest for the wicked following Saturday night's loss, as the Erie Otters traveled north of the border to Guelph for a Sunday matinee affair with the Storm in the Sleeman Centre. After a close, 3-2 loss against the Storm, Erie would look to close out a weekend of battles against top-five teams with a road win.
Special teams would be the stars in period one, as both teams would find a goal on their lone power plays. Before that would happen, the Storm would give the home fans something to cheer for just 7:28 into the game, as Chase Coughlan (2) would sneak one through for a 1-0 lead. 1:55 later, the Otters would get one on their man-advantage as Noah Sedore (6) would rip one from the high slot. With a 1-1 game for the next five minutes, the Storm would find themselves on the power play from a Cameron Lowe hooking, and capitalize with Danny Zhilkin's (10) third goal in three games. Guelph would retake the lead, but they wouldn't be done there. :16 later, Cooper Walker (3) would take a shot, rebound it, and re-shoot it through for the third goal of the night from the Storm. After 20 minutes of play, the Storm would take a 3-1 lead and lead in shots 11-6.
The second period would be completely controlled by the Storm, as they would start their scoring just :47 into the period from Jacob Maillet's first goal of the season to make it 4-1 Storm. Matthew Poitras (7) would score for the second night in a row to make it a 5-1 Storm lead not even four minutes into the new frame. With 6:36 gone by in the period, Brendan Sellan (6) would grab one out of the air before it left the zone, play it to himself, go back and forth with Brett Bressette, and score his 50th Career Point with a goal. 5-2 Storm. In a span of 1:44 in the halfway mark of the game, Guelph would see goals from Daniil Chayka (4) and and Maillet (2) to make it 7-2 Guelph after 40 minutes of play.
Erie would net the lone goal of the third period, as Christian Kyrou would score his third career goal and third of the season to make it 7-3. Erie would outshoot Guelph in the third period 12-11, and show their fight despite the score. Guelph would take the win on home ice, though, 7-3; outshooting the Otters 35-23.
The week ahead only allows for short rest for the Otters, with Sunday's game kicking off the first of five on the road for Erie. The team bus will load up on Wednesday for Windsor with a Thursday night battle with the Spitfires. The team will then flip over to London for their first road meeting of the season against the Knights, before closing out the weekend on Sunday afternoon in Hamilton against the Bulldogs for the first time this year. Erie will close out the long bus trip blues the following Wednesday night in Flint.
