Guelph managed to stay within a goal of the Soo on Tuesday night, but it wasn’t enough to win the game or extend the series as the Greyhounds completed the sweep, 3-2. The Storm were down 3-0 in the game before climbing back to 3-2 on a shorthanded goal early in the third period. That was as close as they came. The Soo now moves on to take on Connor McDavid and the Erie Otters in the Western Conference Finals. The Otters swept the London Knights, 4-0, and are 8-1 overall in the playoffs. Sault Ste. Marie is 8-0. This one will be a doozy. On the other side of the bracket, Oshawa is up 2-1 on Niagara and North Bay leads Barrie, 2-1. The much-anticipated Erie-Soo match-up may not get started for a while, but should be worth the wait.
