Roadtrip ends in gritty win in Rimouski
The Halifax Mooseheads won their final game of their three-game roadtrip in Quebec with a gutsy 2-1 effort over the Rimouski Oceanic Sunday evening.
The Mooseheads were only able to dress a roster of 19 due to injuries, with just five defensemen available for the game.
Andrew Ryan opened the scoring early, with a goal just 47 seconds into the game. It’s Ryan’s first goal of the season in just his second regular season game back after he sustained an ankle injury in preseason. Cameron Critchlow and Joshua Desmond notched the assists.
Konrad Abeltschauser put the Herd up 2-0 midway through the first with a shot from the top of the circle. Abletschauser logged huge minutes in the game and was named the first star of the game. Critchlow and Ryan added assists.
Rimouski’s Alex Emond put the Oceanic on the board with four minutes to go in the first.
However the Oceanic couldn’t get past rookie goaltender Zach Fucale who turned away 31 shots, Abeltschauser’s goal would stand up to be the winner. And despite the team’s depleted blueline they defensive core did an excellent job of blocking shots.
The win means the Mooseheads collected four of a possible six points on their gruelling roadtrip that saw them play three games in a span of 33 hours in Drummondville, Quebec and Rimouski.
