Coming off back-to-back wins against Western Conference foes, the Tri-City Storm look to extend their two-game winning streak against the Green Bay Gamblers on Friday night in Wisconsin. The Storm have won five of their last six games and are 5-2-0 since Josh Hauge has taken over the head coaching duties.
Tri-City (11-17-0, 22 pts – 7th in Western Conference) is currently on a streak of nine-consecutive games scoring the first goal and are 10-8-0 when scoring the first goal this season.
Since acquiring G Adam Wilcox from the Gamblers in November, the Storm have averaged 3.23 goals per game, while allowing only 2.84 goals against per game and have gone 7-6-0 since the trade. Tri-City, who was 4-11-0 before the trade, was only averaging 2.40 GF/G and 3.40 GA/G before adding the former Green Bay goalie.
Storm LW/C Brad Schierhorn has tied his career and season-high with another five-game point streak. The second year forward from Anchorage, Alaska has one goal and five assists during his current point streak.
