A three-in-three Quebec road trip begins tomorrow night for the Saint John Sea Dogs.
The Sea Dogs, losers of three straight and 1-8-0-1 in their last 10, play in Victoriaville tomorrow night, Sherbrooke on Friday, and Gatineau on Saturday. All games begin at 8pm Atlantic time.
The good news for the Sea Dogs is that the Tigres and Phoenix sit just above Saint John in the overall standings. The Tigres are 16th with a 9-12-1-0 record and have been struggling just as badly as the Sea Dogs of late, losing four straight and have just one win in their last 10. Meanwhile, the Phoenix sit 15th with a 9-12-1-1 record. The Olympiques are currently enjoying some good times, sitting fourth overall with a 16-8-0-0 record.
The Dogs have struggled on the road this year. They are 2-8-0-1 away from Harbour Station and have lost six straight. At least getting a couple points on this trip would be considered a success at this point.
Some other stuff…
- The Tigres acquired 20-year old forward Matthew Boudreau this week from Shawinigan in exchange for a fourth- and ninth-round pick. Boudreau was a point-per-game player with the Halifax Mooseheads last year.
- This road trip continues a stretch of five straight road games for the Sea Dogs. The very exciting Rhoda’s Christmas Festival is at Harbour Station this weekend.
