Arena Iamgold (2,150) ~ Rouyn-Noranda, QC
Can we officially say they have connected as a team? I would say yes we can. The Mooseheads may not be as dominate as they have been the past two seasons but they still got some power. Halifax welcomed the league’s best last weekend and chased their starting goaltender on their way to a 8-2 victory over the Rimouski Oceanic. That explosive game started the Herd’s first three game win streak of the season. They’ll be looking to continue their strong play against a team that is only 3 points ahead of them. Rouyn-Noranda is on top of a group of four teams that has 30 points.
This is the second and last match up between these two teams this season. The Huskies won the last meeting back at the beginning of October. Alexandre Fortin and Antoine Waked had a goal and an assist each to lead Rouyn-Noranda to a 5-0 win on the road.
Mooseheads: 12-12-2-1 = 27 points (4th in Maritimes division, 13th overall)
Huskies: 14-11-2-0 = 30 points (3rd in West division, 8th overall)
ROU: Francis Perron 35pts (15G & 20A), Mathieu Lemay 31pts (18G & 13A), Ryan Penny 27pts (13G & 14A)
HFX: Timo Meier 36pts (17G & 19A), Nikolaj Ehlers 35pts (11G & 24A), Philippe Gadoury 23pts (9G & 14A)
Halifax is coming off a 6-3 victory over the Shawinigan Cataractes on Thursday night in the first game of this Quebec road trip. Timo Meier led the team in goals scoring 4 during the game while Nikolaj Ehlers had 5 assists for the Mooseheads.
Rouyn-Noranda is coming off a 5-3 defeat on home ice against the Drummondville Voltigeurs on Wednesday night. Antoine Waked led the Huskies with a goal and an assist while Samuel Harvey made 12 saves on 13 shots after taking over for Alexandre Belanger.
