Some news and notes from yesterday’s Sea Dogs game…
- Drew Gross scored his first QMJHL goal on Sunday, netting a shorthanded marker in the third period.
- Nathan Noel recorded his first goal of the season in the third period on a shorthanded breakaway. Noel also scored in Saint John’s first game in Moncton last season.
- Moncton allowed two shorthanded goals yesterday. They also allowed two on Friday against Cape Breton.
- Saint John’s shorthanded goals came during a high sticking double minor to Matt Green.
- Saint John’s penalty kill had another busy day, killing off seven of Moncton’s eight power plays. The Dogs have allowed one power play goal this season while scoring two shorthanded goals.
- Wildcats really dominated the second period, outshooting Saint John 14-4.
- Alexander Kealey and Lane Cormier were tossed in the third period for a staged fight.
- Saint John earned just one point this weekend, the fewest in the division. Cape Breton was the only Maritimes Division team to win both of their games.
- Legit light show before the game at the Coliseum.
NOTES: Only three Sea Dogs didn’t record a shot… Spencer Smallman had six shots… Jakub Zboril had three hits… Saint John won 41 of 67 faceoffs… Conor Garland had five shots… Sebastien Auger had an equipment issue in the second period, causing a delay of a few minutes.
NEXT GAME: The Sea Dogs’ home opener is on Friday night at 7:30 p.m. against the Acadie-Bathurst Titan.
