A perfect weekend for the Olympiques

For one of the rare occasion this season, the Gatineau Olympiques had a perfect weekend. After winning Friday night against Drummondville in a shootout they won against the Sherbrooke Phoenix by a score of 3 to 2 in overtime yesterday.


The Olympiques were the first to get the ball rolling when Deric Boudreau (Poirier & Beauregard) scored his second of the season. However the celebration didn’t last long, the Phoenix replied not long after with a tic-tac-toe goal by Vincent Deslauriers (Kamay & Lysenko).


The Olympiques came out strong in the second period. Benefiting of a lack of effort by the locals in their own zone, Taylor Burke with his 11th of the season scored to allow his team to retrieve to the dressing room with a 2-1 lead after 40 minutes of play.


The Phoenix came close to tying the game at the beginning of the third period when Michael McNamee was refused a goal. Jeremy Beaudry (Bernier & Lesway) finally scored on a power play to bring everyone back to scare one.


For a second consecutive game, the Olympiques needed an overtime to win. Gatineau didn’t need much time to score; Tomas Hyka put an end to the game with 0:47 of play in overtime.


Éric Brassard was once more in front of the net for Gatineau. He stopped 21 of the 23 shots. As for Jacob Gervais-Chouinard he also stopped 21 shots.


The Olympiques will play their next game at home against the Baie-Comeau Drakkar at 7h30 this Wednesday. The Olympiques will honor Claude Julien before the game.
