Something very rare happened on Tuesday night in Chicoutimi – the Saint John Sea Dogs lost a playoff game in overtime.
The Sea Dogs have played nine overtime games since their first playoff appearance in 2008. Tuesday was just the second time they lost an OT game and the first since 2009.
Tuesday’s game ended an impressive six-game playoff overtime winning streak. Their last win came last May when Alexandre Beauregard scored the President’s Cup winner in Gatineau.
