News & Notes From Saturday's Game

Some stuff from last night’s game in Halifax…

  • The Mooseheads are rolling right now. They have won nine straight games and are just one point back of first-place Blainville-Boisbriand – although the Moose have played three more games.
  • The Sea Dogs have now lost eight straight games and are closing in on tying their season high nine-game losing streak. They are 1-8-0-1 in their last 10 games and have just one win in their last 18 games.
  • Saint John’s road woes also continued last night. They are 2-12-0-1 away from home this season and have lost 10 straight on the road. It could be worse though – Shawinigan is 0-12-1-0 on the road this year.
  • The Sea Dogs couldn’t get much of anything going offensively last night, much like their 3-0 loss in Halifax back in October. Saint John had just 12 shots through two periods and 22 in total. The league considered 10 of those 22 shots to be dangerous.
  • Saint John scored just one goal in two games this weekend.
  • Saint John contained Jonathan Drouin to just two assists last night. The Tampa Bay Lightning prospect extended his point streak to 13 games.
  • Another 40+ shot night for Sebastien Auger. It was the 11th time this season that Auger has faced 40 or more shots in a game. Six of his eight starts this month have seen him face 40 or more shots
  • Sea Dogs scratches were forwards Spencer Smallman (injury) and 20-year old Lukas Walter (healthy) along with defensemen Alexander McQuaid (healthy) and Thomas Chabot (healthy).
  • Via John Moore, Nikolaj Ehlers is good.

NOTES: The Mooseheads wore their green third jerseys… Stephen Anderson had five shots… Kelly Bent had three hits… Nikolaj Ehlers had six shots… Connor Moynihan had three hits… big crowd of 8,526 at the game… Halifax has defeated the Sea Dogs in three of their four meetings this season… these two don’t meet again until January 4th… the Sea Dogs play their next five games at home.
NEXT GAME: The Sea Dogs host the Charlottetown Islanders on Wednesday night at Harbour Station.
