OTTAWA - Defenceman Adam Comrie scored twice to help the Guelph Storm stay in the hunt for a playoff spot with a 4-3 win over the Ottawa 67's in Ontario Hockey League action Sunday afternoon.
Taylor Beck and Connor Tresham also scored for Guelph (23-25-4), who got a 34-save performance from Brandon Foote.
Andrew Merrett, Shane Prince and Travis Gibbons scored for Ottawa (27-19-7). Petr Mrazek started in goal for the 67's but was replaced late in the first period after allowing three goals on 11 shots. Chris Perugini finished up and turned aside 14 of 15 shots.
The Storm used one of their three games in hand to pull within two points of the idle Owen Sound Attack, who hold down the eighth and final playoff spot in the Western Conference of the OHL.
The win and two-goal performance was also nice for Comrie, who was born in Asburn, VA but grew up in Ottawa. He had a nice cheering section Sunday at the Urbandale Centre.
"This definitely feels good, especially being the third game in three days," Comrie said.
"It was nice to come here and get the two goals and to get the win. It was good to play here it was my dream (growing up) to play for the 67's. It was also a big key game that we had to win as we're in position for a playoff spot."
