The Guelph Storm hope to make it two wins in a row in Game 4 of the OHL Finals against the Ottawa 67’s on Wednesday night.

The Storm are coming off a 7-2 victory on Monday at the Sleeman Centre to cut the 67’s lead in the best-of-seven series to 2-1.

Ottawa took Game 1 at home by a score of 7-2 and followed it up with a 4-3 win in Game 2 at TD Place.

Alexey Toropchenko has four goals in the series for Guelph, while Nick Suzuki has a playoff-leading 35 points. 67’s goaltender Michael DiPietro is unlikely to play after going down with an ankle injury in Game 3.

The puck is scheduled to drop in Game 4 just after 7 p.m. at a sold-out Sleeman Centre.

No matter what happens in Game 4, both teams will be heading back to the nation’s capital for Game 5 on Friday night.

They will join the host team, the Halifax Mooseheads, along with the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies of the QMJHL and the winner of WHL Final between the Prince Albert Raiders and Vancouver Giants.
