RECAP: Ehlers Leads Moose Comeback

By (Ashley Hennigar) ROUYN-NORANDA – Like normal, when the Halifax Mooseheads are down Nikolaj Ehlers scores at the right time to get them back in the game and sometimes leads the team to victory. Your Moosheads were down 2-0 to the hometown Rouyn-Noranda Huskies after 20 minutes but surmounted an amazing comeback on the back of Ehlers’ 6 points night. The win give Halifax 4 straight victories and for the first time all year they are above .500 with a 13-12-2-1 record now.

It was a back and forth game in the second period. Danny Moynihan’s goal at 17:31 of the middle frame tied the game at 3 but Antoine Waked scored less than 2 minutes later to give the Huskies a 4-3 lead after 40 minutes. Nikolaj Ehlers scored his second of the night 7 seconds into the last period to tie it at 4 and than both teams had a goal disallowed. Andrew Shewfelt gave the Mooseheads their first lead with 7:23 to go and Nikolaj Ehlers would help the team never look back.
