The Grande Prairie Storm crossed the border and came up a little bit short on Saturday.

The Storm travelled to Prince George to take on the British Columbia Hockey League Spruce Kings and were nipped 3-2 in the B.C. city.

It was the Storm's second pre-season game and second loss to the Kings, who had downed the Storm 3-1 in Grande Prairie earlier in the week.

Next up to close out pre-season play for the Storm are the Whitecourt Wolverines, a Storm North Division foe in the Alberta Junior Hockey League.

The Storm are in Whitecourt on Friday and then host the Wolverines on Saturday, Sept. 9 at 7:30 p.m. in Revolution Arena.
