In the quarterfinal round, Edmonton took the first game in the best of five series before the Storm evened the score on Friday with a 4-2 win in Edmonton. On the 23rd, the Storm beat the Athletics 3-2 taking a 2-1 game lead in the best-of-five series. Edmonton came back to tie the series and force a game five with a 4-2 win on Sunday. In Game five, the Storm knocked Edmonton out of the playoffs.
