Storm Out-Shoot Peoria, Fall 2-0

The Quad City Storm fell in game one of the weekend series against the Peoria Rivermen by a final score of 2-0.

Quad City out shot Peoria 27-21 but wasn’t able to sneak a puck passed Peoria netminder Stephen Klein who recorded his fifth shutout of the season.

Ben Blasko scored the first Rivermen goal off a rebound at 4:58 of the first period and Beau Walker made it 2-0 with a slapshot at 5:41 of the third.

Tonight’s game provides the #ColdWarOn74 with another feisty chapter for its history book; six fights and one hundred and fifty-six minutes in penalties highlighted a game that should lead to another spirited contest tomorrow.
