Hockey fans in Campbell River were treated to a barn burner at the Rod Brind’Amour arena last night.
The Storm and the Victoria Cougars took their final regular season game to extra time tied at four a piece. With just 23 seconds left in the second overtime, Ryan Carson, on a perfect feed from Nathan Looyson scored to give the visitors the 5-4 victory.
Head Coach Lee Stone agrees that for the fans it was a thrilling game.
Gage Colpron scored his second of the night, late in regulation, to draw the two teams even. Josh Coblenz and Alex Brewer also scored for the Storm.
Campbell River has one last game before the Christmas break. They are on the road against the Comox Valley Glacier Kings who are in desperate need of a win.
It’s a 7:30 p.m. puck drop tonight at the Comox Valley Sports Centre.
