For the first time since their inaugural season in 1991-92, the Guelph Storm will not be in the playoffs.

A win by the Saginaw Spirit earlier Sunday eliminated Guelph from playoff contention, hours before the Storm would have sealed the deal themselves by losing 5-2 to the Sarnia Sting in Sarnia.

Bradley Van Schubert made 49 saves in a losing cause against the Sarnia Sting, holding the game scoreless after 20 minutes. But a six-goal second period saw the Sting take a 4-2 lead in the second period.

James McEwan, with his 23rd of the season, and Jake Bricknell had the Storm goals.

The lone goal of the third period was a shorthanded empty netter by the sting with 1:27 left on the clock. Guelph will host the Ottawa 67's on Friday.
