In game 6 against the Ottawa 67's, though the Storm was leading the series 3-2, they were down 2-0 heading into the second period.

As they had done on several occurances throughout the playoffs, they completed an epic comeback, scoring five goals in the second period to eventually win the game 8-3. 

In their fourth straight win of the series, they eliminated the 67's and were crowned the 2019 OHL Champions.
