Sparks stops 24 shots for fifth shutout of the season

OTTAWA - Garret Sparks stopped 24 shots for his league-leading fifth shutout of the season as the Guelph Storm blanked the host Ottawa 67's 6-0 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League play.

Tanner Richard and Daniel Poliziani each had a goal and two assists for the Storm (25-14-5), who extended their win streak to four games, as Andrey Pedan, Brock McGinn, Cody McNaughton and Scott Kosmachuk each scored once.

Clint Windsor turned away 47-of-53 shots for the 67's (12-31-3), who are winless in four outings.

Guelph went 2 for 7 on the power play while Ottawa failed to score on three chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

You could see out there that everybody was willing to compete, to sacrifice, even blocking shots to the end. Even in the third when we were up 5-0, guys were still working hard and blocking shots That's a nice feeling also for the future.
