The Campbell River Storm continue their playoff series against the Nanaimo Buccaneers tonight after dropping their opener 4-1 at home to the Hub City squad on Wednesday.

Despite outshooting the Buccaneers 44-27, the Storm could only pop one behind the Bucs netminder. Michael Olson tied it up for the Storm in the second period but the Buccaneers took the lead again before the second intermission and then added two in the third frame.

The second game of the series went last night in Nanaimo after the Mirror went to press (see www.campbellrivermirror.com for the score). The third game of the best of seven goes tonight at the Rod Brind’Amour Arena at 7:30. Game four goes Sunday in Nanaimo and game five goes Wednesday at Strathcona Gardens.
