RECAP: Score, Score, Score

By (Ashley Hennigar) HALIFAX – Against the league leading, according to the Mooseheads, Rimouski Oceanic your Halifax Mooseheads blew up the scoreboard on Saturday night at the Scotiabank Centre. Timo Meier and Sam Leblanc scored twice in a game that was supposed to end the other way around. The whole game you could not tell that these two teams only play each other two times a season. Each team showed a bit of fiestiness against the other and both were able to capitalize on the man advantage. There was at least 4 real fights and a few more scrums throughout the game including Olivier Tremblay punching Nikolaj Ehlers in the face with his blocker after they got tangled together. Ehlers was in a fight as well, getting kind of creamed by Anthony DeLuca toward the end of the second period which gave him a Gordie Howe hat trick.
