FINAL: Saint John 1, Charlottetown 7
POWNAL, PEI – The Saint John Sea Dogs got smoked in their second game of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League’s pre-season.
Either Matt Green or Dawson Theede (the box score says Green wore No. 27 while the lineup sheet sys Theede) had Saint John’s lone goal in a 7-1 loss to Charlottetown. Alex D’Orio got the start and allowed three goals on 20 shots. Alex Bishop took over midway through (according to the box score) and allowed four goals on 24 shots.
Keith Getson had a hat trick for Charlottetown. Mitchell Balmas had two goals while singles came from Josh Shatford and Shawn Boudrias. Olivier Chalifour and Guillaume Briand-Briere combined to make 28-save win.
Saint John fell to 1-1-0-0 on the pre-season with the loss. The Dogs were coming off a fairly solid 5-0 victory over the Acadie-Bathurst Titan on Thursday.
