POSTSCRIPT: Sea Dogs 1, Armada 8

A collection of recaps from yesterday’s 8-1 Saint John Sea Dogs loss to the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada…

Our recap. Sometimes you win. Sometimes you lose. Sometimes you have to play the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada on the backend of a three-in-three road trip.

Le Nord Info’s recap. The Armada scored a lot of goals.

Sports Du Nord’s recap. The first period was close!

The Canadian Press' recapAt Boisbriand, Que., Danick Martel had three goals and an assist and Marcus Hinds scored twice as the Armada (15-5-2) crushed Saint John (10-11-0), which has dropped back-to-back contests.

News 88.9’s recap. Featuring Tim Roszell’s goal calls.’s recap. The Saint John Sea Dogs were playing in their third game in as many nights and fell to the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada 8-1 in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action Sunday.

SCRATCHES: The Sea Dogs were without Benjamin Hade, Matthew Highmore, Mackenzie Brown, Pierre Durepos, Spencer Smallman, Michael Mastrangelo, and Jurij Repe on Sunday afternoon.

According to News 88.9, Michael Mastrangelo received a two-game suspension for his fight on Saturday night. Jurij Repe was out with an “upper body injury” that he suffered in the first period of Saturday’s game.

Jason Seed and Jakub Izacky – who were both hurt on Friday in Sherbrooke and did not play on Saturday – returned to the Saint John lineup.

FIRST PERIOD: The first period was a decent road period for the Sea Dogs especially considering they were playing their third game in three days. The Armada led just 1-0 after one and outshot Saint John 13-5. The Dogs had two power play opportunities but failed to connect on either.

SECOND: It wasn’t a bad second period for Saint John. They were outshot just 12-9. The Dogs tied the game at 1-1 just 50 seconds into the frame but would allow three goals to give the Armada a 4-1 lead after 40 minutes. The Sea Dogs had quite a few solid scoring opportunities but could not beat Etienne Marcoux in the BLB net.

TESINK: Ryan Tesink scored Saint John’s only goal in the game to extend his goal scoring streak to seven games. The seven-game streak breaks the previous team record of six which was held by Jonathan Huberdeau (twice), Michael Kirkpatrick, and Scott Howes, reports News 88.9.

The St. Louis Blues prospect now has 11 goals and 11 assists in 19 games this season.

HUBERDEAU: Jonathan Huberdeau assisted on Tesink’s goal extending his point streak to six games. Huberdeau now has 12 goals and 17 assists in 21 games this year.

THIRD: The Armada scored four times and outshot Saint John 18-4 in the third period. Not pretty.

SHOTS: Final shots on goals were 43-18 for the Armada. That was slightly better than Saturday’s game in Drummondville where the Sea Dogs were outshot 44-17.

AUGER: Sebastien Auger now leads the league in minutes played. He is also third in saves with 512. He made 35 in the loss yesterday.

CUOMO: Marcus Cuomo picked up an instigator at 19:43 of the third, meaning he will be given a suspension. Not the best move by the Sea Dogs’ rookie forward.

MARTEL: Danick Martel was in beast mode for the Armada yesterday. He recorded a hat trick to give him six goals on the season. He completed his trio of goals with just three seconds left.

ROAD TRIP: Saint John’s three-in-three road trip came to an end with yesterday’s loss. They finish the trip with a 1-2-0-0 record and were outscored 18-11.

STANDINGS: The Sea Dogs fell back below the .500 mark and now have a record of 10-11-0-0. They sit fifth in the Telus Maritimes Division and 13th overall in the league.

NOTES: This was the final meeting between the Sea Dogs and Armada this regular season… Jeff Lansing provided colour commentary on News 88.9 once again… Steven Duda celebrated his 18th birthday yesterday… Duda, Jason Cameron, and Aidan Kelly were all a -4… Elie Berube, Julien Bahl, and Marcus Hinds were all a +4… Stefan Matteau and Danick Martel each had seven shots… there were only three penalties called in the first two periods. Things exploded in the third.
