The Tri-City captured the Clark Cup as the playoff champions of the United States Hockey League tonight with a 4-1 victory in front of a sold-out home crowd over the Dubuque Fighting Saints to take the championship series three games to none. The championship is the first for the Storm in franchise history. The title also comes in the first year for Storm head coach and general manager Bill Muckalt.
Leading the way for Tri-City in the victory was goalie Jake Kielly, who was sensational the entire playoffs for the Storm with a 1.67 goals against average and .949 save percentage in the playoffs heading into tonight's final game.
On the offensive side, Alex Limoges scored the first two goals of the game for Tri-City, then set up linemate Wade Allison for the third goal, which was Allison's USHL-best ninth of the playoffs.
