Mooseheads drop road decision to PEI Rocket
The Halifax Mooseheads were lackluster Friday night losing 6-1 to the worst team in the league.
There was a lot of excitement in Moose Country with the return of Martin Frk from a concussion and news that rookie Jonathan Drouin would join the team afterall, but there wasn’t much excitement on the ice as the Mooseheads fell to the PEI Rocket on the road.
HRM native Ben Duffy played Moose killer, scoring a natural hat trick and then adding another for good measure later in the game.
Darcy Ashley finally got the moose on the board with a nice goal in the third period but the game was out of hand by then.
Rookie scoring sensation Nathan MacKinnon left the game in the second period, he did return only to play one shift and then went to the dressing room. MacKinnon watched the rest of the game from the sidelines. The nature of the injury is unknown although it appeared to be the shoulder area.
The game was the first of a three-game-in-three-days roadtrip and the first of seven games in ten days.
The team plays next in Saint John for back to back games Saturday at 7pm and Sunday at 3pm. The first place Sea Dogs will be depleted with several players reporting to Team Canada’s World Junior Selection Camp and a couple injuries.
