[SUPER=03-Roanoke/Storm vs. Express; :00]

This is only time the Express is home on a Friday and Saturday night until mid-February. Toledo opens things up as Jason Norrie scores from right face-off circle as the Storm goes in front 1-to-nothing in the opening period. It was 2-to-nothing before Roanoke came alive. Vern Fiddler behind the net to Rod Taylor to Duncan Dalmao who fires it straight in. It's now 2-to-1. Roanoke again. This time Pete Gardiner takes care of business on his own with finesse goal.
[super=38-Toledo/7/Roanoke/5;]

The Express loses 7-to-5 despite outshooting Toledo by 20 shots.
