One thing is for sure, Olympiad didn’t give up despite trailing 0-3. From the ninth second into play, Alexis Gendron lifted the 5,000 fans gathered at the Slush Puppie Center by defeating William Russo with a low shot to finish in 14th place in the playoffs.

It was the third game in a row that Gatineau scored the first goal of the game but, as they always did, they once again allowed the Remparts to tie the game when Justin Robidas beat Francisco Lapina with an accurate shot into the porthole.

One element that the first three matches of the Olympics were lacking was their inability to capitalize on their quality chances and there was another example of this in the second period when Cam McDonald was awarded a penalty after stumbling before. Thomas Darcy. no. 61, however, was never able to top William Rousseau.

This lack of opportunism again hurt the Olympics. With 8:35 to go in the third, Truchon took advantage of good work in the offensive zone by Théo Rochette and Zachary Bolduc before hitting Lapenna with the one timer. Vsevolod Komarov completed the empty net with one minute left.

Tensions boiled over after that, with Isaac Bellevue and Pierre-Olivier Roy even throwing gloves.
