With the series win the STORM now move on to the NBL Finals starting Saturday April 6th in London, Ontario against the Lightning. Game two will be played Sunday night with the series shifting back to Prince Edward Island for games three and four (if needed) Wednesday, April 10th and 12th at Credit Union Place.
