MacKenzie Entwistle scored two goals for Guelph in a 7-2 demolition of the Ottawa 67's in Game 3 of the OHL Final. Behind Entwistle's pair of third-period tallies, the Storm climbed back into the series and handed Ottawa their first loss of the 2019 playoffs.
After dropping Game 1 and Game 2 on the road, Entwistle and the Storm faced a must-win scenario heading home to the Sleeman Centre. With a 4-2 lead heading into the third period, the Storm turned to Entwistle as the Blackhawks prospect went to work with a pair of insurance goals.
Entwistle used some nifty stickhandling to fire home his first goal of the night, skating between two Ottawa defenders right in front of net to make it 5-2. The Blackhawks prospect collected a loose puck in the slot for his second goal of the game with three minutes to play.
Entwistle took home Third Star of the Game honors after his scoring outburst and now has 19 points (7G, 12A) in 21 postseason games.
The win was massive for Guelph's once improbable championship hopes. The Storm came into Game 3 with a 12-8 postseason record, facing a 67's team with a perfect 14-0 mark in the 2019 OHL playoffs. After coming back from 3-0 series deficit in the second round and a 3-1 deficit in the conference finals, the Storm have made a habit of defying the odds.
With Game 4 set for Wednesday night, Entwistle and the Storm will have a chance to even the series on home ice.
