However, the Rimbers managed to retire to the bound locker room. James Malatesta redirected Justin Robidas’ shot to fail the goalkeeper. In this sequence, the trio of Malatesta, Robidas and Charles Savoy achieved the best moment of the Rempartes team in the second period.

This morning, Patrick Roy told us that the Remparts may be going through a rough patch, but they shouldn’t be pushed out of the game. This is exactly what they achieved.

Fast paced first

The first period was played at high speed. Highly effective in the power play since the start of the series, the Mooseheads struck again with an extra man to open the scoring through a burning Alexandre Doucet.

After a stop by William Russo who stopped Josh Lawrence at the breakaway as the Mooseheads were one man short, the Remparts scored twice.

Jumping on his return, Justin Robidas equalized before Pierre-Olivier Roy tapped in a pass from Zachary Bolduc to launch the visitors ahead. The celebrations were short-lived as Mathieu Cataford put both teams back at square one after just 54 seconds.

In addition to four goals, we conceded quite a few rough checks. In a sequence where both players stayed on the ice, Roy and David Moravec got into violent contact in Mooseheads territory.

Soon after, Nathan Gaucher pinched Zachary L’Heureux hard into the center of the ice.
