The top seed in the Western Conference, the Tri-City Storm, are just one win from advancing to the Clark Cup, as they shut out the Waterloo Black Hawks 3-0 at Young Arena to take a 2-1 series lead.
The Storm scored one goal in every period to earn the victory. Wade Allison scored the eventual game-winning goal in the first period, Max Humitz found the back of the net in the second, and Jake Wahlin added the third and final goal in the last twenty minutes. Allison now has two game-winning goals in Clark Cup Playoffs.
Despite putting 41 shots on goal, Waterloo was unable to put a puck past Jake Kielly, who stopped every attempt he faced to record his third shutout in this year's playoffs. The Clarkson commit has recorded a 0.84 GAA and a .973 SV% in six playoff starts, including three shutouts. The Storm will look to advance to their second Clark Cup Final in club history with a win on Saturday night.
