It was a game of streaks as the Storm led after one quarter 41-31. The Rainmen fought back to take a 64-61 lead to the locker room at halftime. The teams entered the fourth period tied 91-91, but the Storm answered with their best quarter of the game, outscoring the Rainmen 42-31, for an 11-point win before 2,291 fans at Eastlink Arena. Overall, the Storm attracted 37,543 fans to their 20 regular-season home games.
The Storm completed the regular season on a club-record seven-game winning streak to finish at 26-14 (won-lost), good enough for the Atlantic Division championship and No. 2 seed in the playoffs.
The Storm will host the first two games of the best-of-five semifinal series against the Windsor Express on Sunday, March 24 (2 p.m.), and Tuesday, March 26 (7 p.m.).
