MISSING IN ACTION: Devon Oliver-Dares, Matthew Highmore, Spencer Smallman, Mackenzie Brown, Steven Duda, Benjamin Hade, and Pierre Durepos did not play for Saint John on Friday night.

GAGNE: What a night for Sea Dogs defenseman Kevin Gagne. The 20-year old played in his 251st game last night, tying Yann Sauve’s club record for most games played by a defenseman.

Gagne was in beast mode last night, recording his third goal of the season, five shots, and an incredible +6 rating. Gagne is now averaging a point per game with 13 points in 13 games.

MacAULAY: It’s hard to believe, but Stephen MacAulay scored his first even strength goal of the season in the first period last night. He opened the scoring at 3:11. MacAulay now has eight goals this season with seven of those coming on the power play. His seven man advantage markers are tied for second most in the league.

MASTRANGELO: Michael Mastrangelo scored his first QMJHL goal at 13:44 of the first period. It was also his first point in the Q. The Ontario native has played in 13 games with Saint John this year.

ZILBERT: Noah Zilbert also picked up his first QMJHL point – and assist - on Mastrangelo’s goal in the first period. The speedy Zilbert was playing in his 16th game in the Q.

CUOMO: The hard working Marcus Cuomo has been picking it up offensively over the past few games. He had his first multi-point game last night, registering a goal and an assist. Cuomo now has two goals and two assists over his past five games.

CARRIER/LAVOIE: William Carrier and Alexandre Lavoie each had a goal and assist for Cape Breton last night. They are each having good seasons and have been two of the few bright spots for the Eagles this year.

CHLPA: The Screaming Eagles never even got to vote on unionization yesterday as the CHLPA called it off. The Cape Breton Post has all the details. It’s probably for the best given what’s gone down this past week.

REGULATION: Last night saw the Sea Dogs win in regulation time for the first time since September 30. They had four other wins since then but they all came in extra time or shootout.

STANDINGS: The Sea Dogs improved to 9-8-0-0 with last night’s victory. Saint John moved up to 11th overall in the league and fourth in the Telus Maritimes Division. They are two points back of the Moncton Wildcats for third place in the division and have played one less game.

NOTES: There was a Veterans Week themed ceremonial faceoff before the game… this was the first meeting of the season between the Sea Dogs and Screaming Eagles… Stephen MacAulay, Ryan Tesink, and Kevin Gagne each had five shots… Jason Seed and Jonathan Huberdeau were each a +4… Stephen Woodworth was a -4 for the Eagles… Michael Clarke had six shots… Kyle Campbell had three hits.
