The first goal of the night comes late in the first with a 1:57 left on the clock. Hooligans #10 Joe Hutchison scored on a wide open rebound. Hooligans would take a 1-0 lead going into the second period.
Hooligans would start the second strong with an early goal off the rush by #16 Zach Milos. Storm would respond just over a minute later with a scrappy goal in front scored by #10 Rick Woznick, assisted by #9 Jim Wilson. Hooligans lead 2-1 with 9:51 left in the second. Storm would pick up two quick goals 11 seconds apart with 8 minutes left in the period. Both goals were scored by #9 Jim Wilson, Visani and Jones would pick up assists on the goals. Visani would then make it a 4-2 game with a left-handed shot into the bottom right corner. That would make it four unanswered goals scored by the Storm. Before being able to finish my sentence, Wilson would score a back hander to complete his hat trick. The Storm had really taken control over this second period. Storm would take a 5-2 lead and a power play heading into the last period.
Hooligans would finally respond to the 5 unanswered goals with a goal half-way through the 3 rd to make it a 5-3 game. Storm would hold that lead and defeat the Hooligans 5-3. Buffalo Wild Wings Player of the game would go to Storm forward #9 Jim Wilson for his 3 goals and 1 assists performance.
