Tanner Richard and Scott Kosmachuk each had a goal and an assist while Zack Mitchell and Cody McNaughton each scored once to round out Guelph's offence.

Eric Locke led the Storm (4-6-2) offensively with two goals and two assists, Vincent Trocheck had a goal and an assist while Garret Ross and Sam Povorozniouk scored a goal apiece.

Garret Sparks made 41 saves for the win as Jake Paterson allowed all eight goals against on 40 shots in a losing cause.

Guelph was successful with its power play as they went 3-for-5. Saginaw went 1-for-7.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
