And perhaps the Rangers are due for a relapse. After all, in the past two seasons, the Blueshirts have owned the Storm.
Not this year.
And it's hurting the club since the Rangers play Guelph eight times. So far, none of the games have even been close. Thrice the Storm have scored six goals. Yesterday, it was a 5-0 pasting (thanks to Tony Saxon of the Mercury for the photo).
More concerning is the rate at which the Rangers are being blanked - every 4.6 games this season.
All of it should serve as fuel for this Friday's rematch at the Aud.
Kitchener is back in the basement in the west and five points behind Plymouth for the final playoff spot.
