HALIFAX – The Saint John Sea Dogs improved to 18-6-1-4 on Saturday with a 3-1 road win over the Halifax Mooseheads.
18 wins in 29 games is an impressive total for a team that was expected to be a middle to lower-of-the-pack team. More impressive is that the Sea Dogs are a win away from matching their win total from all of last season.
The Sea Dogs finished 19-44-2-3 last season. Not even at the midway point of this season, they already have 18 wins.
Saint John can match their win total from 2013-14 with a win over the Val-d’Or Foreurs on Sunday afternoon at Harbour Station.
Some other news and notes…
