Former Sea Dog Scott Oke had a goal and an assist as the Rimouski Oceanic destroyed the Halifax Mooseheads on Friday night, winning 9-0. The Oceanic now own a 3-2 lead in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League semifinal playoff series.
With the win, Rimouski can advance to the President’s Cup Final with a victory in Game 6 on Sunday at the Metro Centre. If needed, a Game 7 would be played on Monday night in Halifax.
The Oceanic had nine different goal scorers as Oke, J-P Mathieu, Jerome Gauthier-Leduc, Peter Trainor, Jonathan Lavoie, Alexandre Mallet, Francis Beauvillier, Petr Straka, and J-F Plante all connected. Straka also had three assists.
Along with a goal and an assist, Oke finished with a +2 rating and recorded four shots.
Jacob Gervais-Chouinard stopped all 30 shots he faced. At the other end, rookie star Zach Fucale was pulled after allowing six goals on 24 shots. Marc-Olivier Daigle allowed three on 15 shots in relief.
To make things worse for Halifax, the game was broadcast nationally on Sportsnet. Disastrous game.
It’s do or die on Sunday for the Mooseheads.
