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.
