Sags attacking stars have fun in Moncton

With eight points from a 5-2 win, the Sags’ front row scored against the Wildcats at Center Avenir on Sunday afternoon. Andrei Loshko and Thomas Desruisseaux both picked up another point in their ninth straight game.

“It was our best game of the trip. We played with passion from the first to the 60th minute. For playing 7 games in 12 nights the lads have responded,” said backup head coach Olivier Bouchard when it was his first career game at the helm of a junior club. . Bouchard was put in charge of the Chicoutimi team since Yanick Jean was suspended for a game on Saturday after suffering a late-game milk rush in Charlottetown.

Limited Wildcats

The “Sags” limited their rivals several times in the 60 minutes of the game: after the guests took the lead with two goals thanks to Félix Bédard and Loshko, the guests limited the Maritime team to just three shots in about 25 minutes.

While the Wildcats had three power plays, the Bleuets were very effective. However, during a one man down situation, Matteo Mann was shot in the head. The defender retired to the dressing room but came back into play in the third period.

A first burning trio

Despite Moncton’s goals scored by Yoan Loshing and Vincent Labelle, the line-up of Loshko, Maxim Massé and Alexis Morin was extravagant in the second period. Also, the last two Chicoutimi players hit the back of the net in the final moments of the game.

The “Sags” have an appointment next Friday at the Center Georges-Vézina with their great rivals of the 175, the Remparts of Quebec.
