This one will hurt for North Bay. Blujus’ goal at 9:03 of the third period gave North Bay a 3-2 lead, but a funny thing happened on the way to North Bay’s series lead – the Storm scored twice in the final 30 seconds of regulation to steal the game and a 2-1 lead in the best-of-7 OHL Finals. Zack Mitchell scored at 19:30 to tie the game with the goalie pulled, then Brock McGinn scored the winner with 11 seconds left. Blujus was on the ice for the 6-on-5 goal, but was off for the game winner. He was named first star for the game. Game 4 is Wednesday night.
