Wildcats Claw Up Moose

Moose losing streak hits 8; Offence dries up

The Mooseheads were up against the wall in their third game in three nights but they managed to keep the score close against the high-flying Moncton Wildcats.

Although playing better defensively in games against Montreal, Cape Breton and Moncton over the weekend, the Mooseheads offence has dried up as they were outscored 9 – 1 overall. The Moose have now converted just 3 out of 20 powerplay opportunities in their last 5 games.
Sunday’s game against Cape Breton saw Mathieu Corbeil start his second of the weekend and stop 29 shots. It also saw the return of rookie Sawyer Hannay to the line-up, recovered from a heel injury, which added some toughness to the line-up.

Moncton dominated for much of the game on their way to a 3 – 0 win, with Alex Wall and Mark Barberio each scoring, while captain Scott Brannon scored his 25th of the season and the eventual game winner..

Spencer Metcalfe, sent to Moncton at the trade deadline for a seventh-round draft pick, did not play as he served a one-game suspension.

Both Trey Lewis and Mathew Boudreau have been sent back down to midget AAA and will play the remainder of the season there. Hard hitting Dylan McGuigan has impressed enough to stay with the team for the final half of the season.

Announce attendance was 6260.

The Mooseheads have a few days to rest before they begin a 5-game home stand that see them play Chicoutimi, Drummondville, Shawinigan, Acadie- Bathurst and P.E.I.

Three Stars
3rd – Nicola Riopel (MON) – Earned his 10th career shutout with a 25 save effort
2nd – Alex Wall (MON) – Scored his 4th goal of the season on the power play
1st – Kelsey Tessier (MON) – Finished the night with 1 assist and dominated the faceoff circle all night

The Mooseheads start a 5-game homestand, starting with the Chicoutimi Saguenéens on Jan 15th
