According to Jimmy Fallon’s NHL Superlatives, Simon Despres is the second worst at darts. Big news if true.
The Blainville-Boisbriand Armada will be without Ryan Tesink when they take on the Baie-Comeau Drakkar in Game 5 of their President Cup semi-final series tonight. The series is tied 2-2.
Tesink was suspended one-game for throwing a water bottle in Game 4 on Wednesday night. It’s the second suspension of the post-season for the former Sea Dogs forward after getting a five-game ban for a check-from-behind against Moncton in the first-round.
The Drakkar’s Felix Girard is also suspended for tonight’s tilt because of what the league called “dangerous slashing.” Huge shock to see this series getting nasty.
MOSHER WINS KENT CUP
David Mosher and Truro Bearcats won the MHL’s Kent Cu plast night, defeating the Dieppe Commandos 5-2 to win the series in six games. The Bearcats now move on to the Fred Page Cup, taking place from April 30th-May 4th in Saint Jerome, Quebec.
Mosher has played in six career games with the Sea Dogs – five in 2012-13 and one this past season. He was held pointless in those games.
Notables on Dieppe’s roster include Justin McDonald and Mathieu Newcomb.
NHL PLAYOFFS UPDATE
Charlie Coyle and the Minnesota Wild evened their series with the Colorado Avalanche 2-2 with a 2-1 win last night. Coyle scored what proved to be the game-winner at 12:55 of the second on a power play. Coyle now has three goals in four post-season games heading into Game 5 on Saturday night.
Tomas Jurco was a healthy scratch last night and watched his Red Wings lose 3-2 in overtime to the Bruins. Boston leads that series 3-1 heading into Game 5 on Saturday. If you search “Jurco” on Twitter, plenty of people still picked him to score in OT last night. That would have been something.
It was also great to see Joey Hishon in the Avs lineup. He suffered a bad concussion at the 2011 Memorial Cup, a tournament the Sea Dogs would go on to win.
