MISSING IN ACTION: Forwards Devon Oliver-Dares and Jason Cameron along with defenseman Spencer MacDonald were all out of the Sea Dogs’ lineup on Friday night. Cameron served the final game of his four-game suspension.
STREAK: Saint John extended their winning streak to 11 games with the victory. They have not lost since that January 12 loss to the Shawinigan Cataractes. Saint John has also won six straight at Harbour Station.
GAUTHIER: With his goal in the first period, Danick Gauthier, incredibly, has 40 goals this season.
“Gauthier’s goal gave him 40 on the season, as he became the fourth Sea Dog to reach the milestone mark, joining Scott Howes (42 in 2007-08), Jonathan Huberdeau (43 in 2010-11) and franchise record holder Mike Hoffman (46 in 2009-10),” states the Sea Dogs website.
The 20-year sits second in the league in goals scored, five behind leader Zach O’Brien.
HUBERDEAU: Jonathan Huberdeau continued his hot play on Friday by recording three assists. The Florida Panthers prospect now has seven goals and seven assists for 14 points in his past five games.
Overall, Huberdeau now has 19 goals and 33 assists in 26 games, giving him an average of two points per game.
GRIGORENKO: Fairly uneventful game for Mikhail Grigorenko, a top prospect for this year’s NHL Entry Draft. The Russian, who had a hat trick against Saint John earlier this season, did have an assist on Anthony Duclair’s goal. He finished the game with one helper, one shot, and a -1 rating.
BRASSARD: Goaltender Francois Brassard got the start in goal but was replaced after allowing three goals on 12 shots in under 13 minutes of play. Louis Domingue took over in net, allowing just one goal on the 26 shots he faced.
VS QUEBEC: The Sea Dogs finish the season with a 2-1-0-0 record against the Remparts. Quebec will finish with a 1-2-0-0 record against Saint John. The Dogs outscored Patrick Roy’s club 11-5 in the season series.
CORBEIL: Another solid game by Mathieu Corbeil in net. He has been terrific of late. He stopped 25 of 26 shots last night. The 20-year old is now 32-9-0-0 with a 2.29 goals against average and a 0.914 save percentage.
VILLEMAIRE: How ‘bout Maxime Villemaire? He now has four goals in his past three games.
SPORTSNET: Sportsnet broadcasted this one. Initial reports are saying that they did a solid job. We’ll recap their performance later today in a separate post.
STANDINGS: The win kept Saint John one-point ahead of the Shawinigan Cataractes for first overall in the league with 84 points. The Cataractes beat the Baie-Comeau Drakkar 3-2 last night to give them 83 points. The Cats are back in action today, visiting Chicoutimi at 5pm.
NOTES: 6,327 packed Harbour Station last night. It was the team’s second sell-out of the season and second in less than a month. Great atmosphere in the building last night… quiet game for Charlie Coyle on the score sheet. He had no points, shots, or hits. He played a good game though, showing off some speed… Jonathan Huberdeau and Danick Gauthier each had a team high six shots… Ryan Tesink had four hits… Anthony Duclair had a Quebec high four shots… Martin Lefebvre was a -4. Ouch… with this game being nationally broadcast, all of the boards were different. One of the ads was for GoDaddy.com… someone walked away with a 50/50 prize of $12,450.

NEXT GAME: This Tuesday at Harbour Station, the Sea Dogs host the Halifax Mooseheads at 7pm.
