Mooseheads win big over Olympiques
The Halifax Mooseheads were able to overcome a 2-0 deficit to win 6-2 over the hometeam Gatineau Olympiques Wednesday night.
The Mooseheads started the game flat, and it was all Olympiques in the first frame. Alexandre Grenier did have a chance on a penalty shot after being pulled down on the way to the net but he couldn’t put it past goaltender Francois Lacerte.
It was a couple of strange goals that got the Mooseheads rolling. First Brent Andrews would stuff in a loose puck after a scramble, then just a minute later defenseman Konrad Abeltschauser would throw the puck on net to tie the game 2-2.
By the midway point of the second the Moose would have the lead when Matthew Boudreau threaded a perfect pass over to Alexandre Grenier on a 2-on-1 to make it 3-2. From there the Moose didn’t look back. Brad Cuzner, Darcy Ashley and Luca Ciampini would all add markers.
Mooseheads rookie goaltender Zach Fucale turned away 21 shots in his 28th win on the season. He now holds the QMJHL record for most wins by a 16-year-old, previously held by former Cape Breton Screaming Eagles netminder Olivier Roy.
Despite being on the road, the Herd had a small but vocal cheering section. The team now gets on a bus for the six hour trip to Rouyn-Noranda where they’ll play back-to-back games Friday and Saturday.
