The Bucs opened the scoring at the Nanaimo Ice Centre on a goal by Nico Kane at 11:17. The second period went’ scoreless and the Bucs added the insurance goal in the third with a mark by Lucas Lundy at 19:52.

Shots on goal were 37-33 in favour of the Storm and Buccaneers netminder Carlos Siso earned the shutout and the Home Star award. The Storm’s Jayce Hudak was named the Away Star of the game.

A win would have given the Storm top spot in the VIJHL North Division standings. As it stands, they remain one point behind the division leading Parksville Generals with 44 points. The Buccaneers are in third place with 3 points.

Next up for the Storm are the Westshore Wolves at the Rod Brind’Amour Arena Friday at 7:30 p.m.
