What a week to be a Sea Dogs fan! Once again I'm left scrambling to find thumbs down material but, of course, I found some.

Thumbs up to...

  • Michael Kirkpatrick who scored the biggest goal of the season on Friday night in Baie-Comeau, tying the game with 3.6 seconds on the clock. We'd also like to give a thumbs up to Tim Roszell for one of the best calls in franchise history.
  • the goaltending duo of Marc-Antoine Gelinas and Karel St. Laurent. Both got wins this weekend and combined to allow only four goals in three games.
  • Jonathan Huberdeau who continues to improve every single game. He is also a perfect 3/3 in the shootout this season.
  • head coach Gerard Gallant who seems to have the gift of knowing when to call a time-out.
  • whoever spotted the guy at the Tampa Bay Lightning game wearing a Sea Dogs jersey. The picture can be seen on the Sea Dogs Twitter page.
  • the Sea Dogs website who has listened and placed the promotions below the game dates on
  • an amazing October! Several records were set this past month and here's hoping it continues.
  • Zach Phillips who has been very hot of late. Coming off a fight last Sunday he scored a beauty on the Quebec road swing.

Thumbs Down to...

  • the Moncton Wildcats for cancelling Sundays game only 90 minutes prior. Wildtown is put to shame over the incident.
  • Harbour Station for opening the doors only 30 minutes prior to David Copperfield. Brought back some bad memories of the fan symposium from last season.
  • the goal horn. Saint John's recorded goal horn was shown up by Rimouski's lovely sounding horn on Sunday. Maybe someday.
  • a particular jersey in white jersey auction. Splash, the hated and retired Sea Dogs mascots sweater is in the auction with a minimum bid of $100! Maybe someone will buy it and run it over.
  • the QMJHL teams with no video highlights on YouTube. Come out of the cave and join the 21st century already.
  • Cam Russel who broke a stick over the boards in the Mooseheads latest loss according to Metro News. Looking like Christian LaRue more every day.

NEXT MONDAY: Three home games means marketing and attendance are put under the microscope. See you next Monday.
