Centre Air Creebec (2,140) ~ Val-d’Or, QC

Just think, a little over a month ago the Mooseheads couldn’t string two wins together. In the past month they’ve had 2 two game win streaks and are on a four game victory streak right now. Halifax will be looking to continue their strong play this evening when they visit the Foreurs in Val-d’Or. The Herd will be playing a team that is 3 points behind them this time but Zach Fucale will have to be excellent today if Halifax hopes to win. Val-d’Or is third in team scoring with 107 goals for, behind Rimouski and Moncton but they have the most goals against in the league. Can Halifax finish off the month of November strong with another victory? We will have to wait and see.

This is the second and last meeting between the Moose and Val-d’Or this season. The Foreurs won the last one on October 5 with a 4-3 shootout victory. Danny Moynihan had 2 goals to lead Halifax in the defeat while Zach Fucale made 33 saves to take the loss.

Mooseheads: 13-12-2-1 = 29 points (4th in Maritimes division, 13th overall)
