This Sunday sees your Go Goodwins sponsored Manchester Storm face the Braehead Clan at home for the second time this weekend in a 5:30 pm faceoff.

Last night’s game went in favour of the Clan 4-3 thanks to a quickfire double in the third period, evening up the series 1-1. Storm goals came from Scott Pitt, Mike Hammond, and Matt Stanisz, while Braehead replied through Craig Peacock, Landon Oslanski, Michal Gutwald, and Robert Lepine scoring the game-winning goal. Storm won the first meeting between the sides 5-2 two weeks ago at the Braehead Arena. Two goals from Luke Moffatt, and one each from Ehrhardt, Beca, and Long were enough to secure the points for the Storm, Burt and Oslanski getting the goals for the Clan. Over the two games, netminder Ryan Nie has made 70 saves from 79 shots for a save percentage of 89.7%. Mike Clemente has stopped 49 Clan shots for a 89.1% save percentage.

Last night’s game sees the Clan stay in the final playoff spot with 36 points from 39 games, 3 points ahead of Dundee Stars in ninth, however the Stars have three games in hands. The Storm are in a battle for fifth with Nottingham and Sheffield, all three have 45 points having played 37, 35, and 36 games, respectively. With only 2 points separating 3rd and 7th, and Clan looking to chase down the middle pack and consolidate their playoff place, Sundays game is a big one for both teams.

One to watch: Ryan Nie made a number of good saves on Saturday night giving the Clan the chance to win in a good performance. The Ontario-native followed coach Tripp to Braehead from German side Eispiraten Crimmitschau.
