Gaucher and his team’s trio responded on Thursday. The midfielder finished the match with a goal and assist, as did his winger James Malatesta.
“The left line was amazing,” Patrick Roy said after the match.
“Things went well and we were ready,” Gaucher added. “We had to be strong and that’s what we did. Our streak played really well today. […] I didn’t feel compelled to answer at any cost, but I said it and I’ll follow through. We played well, the whole team played well. This is our team, The Remparts. »
Leading 2-0 at the end of the first two games, and limiting the Océanic to eight shots on target on William Russo in 40 minutes, the Remparts saw their opponents cut the difference to 2-1 in the third via Xavier. Cormier, who was on his way back.
Soon after, Rimouski got a golden opportunity to tie the match when Xavier Fillion was awarded a massive penalty after a cross-check against Mile Saint-Denis.
However, Serge Beausoleil’s men were not able to take advantage of this, notably seeing that their advantage was reduced by two minutes due to a simple penalty by Charles Coty.
“When we put it 2 to 1, there were some who were starting to get red-faced on the other side, we fired Beausoleil. In the first period they dominated us and in the second we quietly got ahead and then in the third it was much better. We had the momentum at 2- 1, but we took two stupid penalties. We took advantage of a specialty, but we couldn’t even create chances.”
