Brock McGinn scored twice Thursday to lead the Guelph Storm to a 5-3 win over the Peterborough Petes in the Ontario Hockey League.

Quote of the Day

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
