FINAL: Saint John 0, Halifax 3
The 18-year old stopped every Saint John Sea Dogs shot he faced, helping the Halifax Mooseheads post a 3-0 win.
Halifax, who registered 36 shots on net, had goals courtesy of Darcy Ashley, Timo Meier, and Andrew Ryan.
Lukas Walter picked up an instigator infraction and misconduct and all that good stuff to send the Moose to a power play at 3:54 of the first. Ashley opened the scoring at 7:44 with his first of the season.
Halifax doubled their lead at 13:51 thanks to a Meier goal. The Moose outshot the Sea Dogs 12-7 in the first.
After a scoreless second, Ryan scored at 8:34 of the third to make it 3-0 Halifax. Shots in the third were 11-7 Moose. Saint John’s offense was a no show in this one.
Sebastien Auger made 33 saves in the loss.
SCRATCHES: The Sea Dogs were without forwards Kelly Bent (healthy), Marcus Cuomo (hand), and Juraj Siska (back) along with defensemen Michael Abbott (flu) and Jurij Repe (wrist).
NOTES: The Sea Dogs, who were already without Michael Abbott in this game, finished with just four defenseman as Will Thompson and Olivier LeBlanc both left the game with suspected injuries… the injured Marcus Cuomo provided colour commentary on News 88.9… Stephen Anderson had a team high six shots… Alexander McQuaid had four hits… Halifax’s Jonathan Drouin missed his second straight game with a groin injury... impressive recap we have written here.
The Mooseheads shutout the Sea Dogs for the fourth time in franchise history during the regular season. 1st time since Oct 6, 2006
