Montreal Canadiens player Joshua Roy had a four-point game in a 7-6 win for the Sherbrooke Phoenix against Bay-Como Drackar.
The fifth-round pick in the Habs final draft set the tone for this offensive fest with its fourth goal in the campaign. He also netted Stéphane fils Huard to make it 3-0 to Phoenix at the start of the second half.
Roy did not end there. And he made the score 5-3 with his second goal in the third game in the match of strength. He earned his fourth point one minute later when David Spacek made it 6-3 Phoenix.
Drakkar did not give up and created a three-goal tie straight. Knicks Vinenko, Vincent Collard and Anthony Lavoie hit the target in less than five minutes to get the two teams back to square one.
Julian Anktel made the difference with his fifth goal of the season with less than two minutes remaining.
The Halifax Mooseheads had the last laugh at an attacking feast that ended 6-4.
Cataracts 4 – Mooseheads 6
Elliot Desnoyers distinguished himself in attack with one goal and four assists for the Mooseheads. Jordan Dumais also had a good night with two goals and two assists. Zachary L’Heureux collected a target and an assist.
As for the falls, Olivier Nadeau also gave the answer with four points. He scored a goal and was a partner in achieving three goals for his teammates. Maverick Burke scored one goal and two assists in the loss.
Sergei Litvinov was perfect in front of 35 shots and Chicoutimi Saguins closed Gatineau Olympic 3-0 at Jorge Vizina’s position.
Litvinov kept the fort in the first period, fended off 17 pucks, and scored the first close of his QMJHL career in his eleventh game.
Mate Kaslik had one goal and one assist for Sajen, who found his way back to victory after suffering three consecutive defeats. Yannick Jane’s men scored only three goals during this series.
Julien Heber and Felix LaFrance also hit the goal for Chicoutimi. William Rollo was complicit in his teammates’ goal.
The Olympics, who have high expectations this season, have lost four of their first five games of the season. The Vegas Golden Knights did not play first round Zachary Dean and top prospect Tristan Lono in the upcoming NHL Draft Championship.
Emeric Despati scored two goals in 19 shots in front of Gatineau’s goal.
His evening started off badly when a choppy jump from the gang allowed Habir to send the disc to a deserted network.
Dispati was not at the end of his troubles when the Saguenéens doubled their lead, at 15:32 of the second engagement. Lafranes fired a powerful shot from a point that the Olympique goalkeeper had not seen before.
Kaslik completed the score in an empty net, moments before the confrontation ended with an uproar.
