Tri-City not sweating current slump
Once upon a time, the Tri–City Storm boasted the best record in the USHL. Those days seem like a distant memory as the Storm boys have continued to fall down the Western Conference standings to their current spot in 5th place. On the bright side, Tri–City is just 8 points out of first place and 7 behind for 2nd, which would give them a first round bye in the playoffs. The Storm isn't panicking and believe they still control their own destiny.
"I don't think we're going to do any looking around us," said head coach Anthony Noreen. "Obviously we know this is winning time, we got to find a way to get points and obviously we had a tough game on Sunday where we very easily could of come out of there with none, and we were down in the third period in our third game in three days and we find a way to get a point in that game. So you just have to find a way, whether you're on the road or playing games on the weekend you got to find a way to get points. And the way to do that is by focusing on the little things even more."
