Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

 

A weekend to forget

Friday night, it was in front of 3939 fans that the Olympiques were defeated by the Mooseheads by a score of 5-1. That same evening, Colin White’s jersey was retired. The number 24 will from now on throne beside the number 25 of Maxime Talbot in the bleachers of the old Bob.

An even score persisted after the forty first minutes of play.  Stefan Fournier opened the score in first period with the assistance of Nathan MacKinnon and Jonathan Drouin.  In the second, Taylor Burke assisted by Émile Poirier tied the game on a powerplay.   

Until the third period, Eric Brassard had stopped 20 shots and allowed only 1 goal. However he was abandoned for the last 20 minutes of play. Halifax scored 4 straight goals on 11 shots. Ryan, Ashley, Frk and Drouin all scored.

Still satisfied from his goalie Brassard, Benoit Groulx decided to give another start the following night.  However, the young goaltender of 17 years old did not seem to be ready for that much action.

After two shots from Christophe Lalonde and Dmitri Jaskin, the Wildcats were leading 2-0. Brassard was then replaced by Nishi. A few seconds later, Jaskin added a second goal to his night of work.

At the end of the second period, Samuel Courtemanche finally got read of lots of weight on his shoulder by scoring his first of the season. A good sequence by Boudreau and Chapman was at the origin of this realization.

Martin Reway gave hope to his team by scoring his 11h goal of the season. The Wildcats however destroyed the chances of the Olympiques with three consecutive goals. Wood, Tremaine and Johnston respectively scored their first, second and third of the season.
