night the Otters looked like their old dominate selves in their own building as they finally found the back of the net and held a 44-28 shot clock advantage. With three straight goals in a span of just over 7 minutes after falling behind 1-0, the Otters were able to chase Storm goaltender, Justin Nichols from the net.

The Otters top line of  Connor Brown, Connor McDavid, and Dane Fox was once again dangerous scoring 3 goals and combining for 7 points. Dylan Strome, Connor Brown, Joel Wigle and Dane Fox all recorded goals for the Otters to help them avoid elimination while goaltender Devin Williams made 26 saves on the night.

The Otters looked like the team that earned the respect from the OHL and recorded 106 points throughout the regular season. They dominated for much of the game and managed to chase the oppositions netminder out of the net. Game 5 will be back in Guelph and the Otters are hoping they can build on their impressive 5-2 game 4 victory and once again cheat elimination.
