RECAP: Sea Dogs Win 4-3 (SO)

FINAL: Saint John 4, Chicoutimi 3 (OT)

CHICOUTIMI – The Saint John Sea Dogs managed to split their mini weekend road trip through Quebec on Saturday.

Following a disappointing 3-2 loss to the league’s worst team in Baie-Comeau last night, the Sea Dogs rebounded with a 4-3 shootout victory over the Chicoutimi Sagueneens.

Thomas Chabot, Kyle Ward and Adam Marsh all scored in regulation time for Saint John while Mathieu Joseph netted the shootout winner. Alex Bishop had another solid outing, making 23 stops in the victory.

Antoine Marcoux, Jonathan Bourcier and Gabryel Paquin-Boudreau all scored for the Sags. Julio Billia made 26 saves in the loss.

Marcoux opened the scoring with a power play goal at 6:59 of the opening frame. Chabot tied it less than a minute later and Ward put Saint John ahead at 13:37. With 3:27 left in the first, Bourcier netted his 15th of the season to send things to intermission tied at 2-2.

At 2:55 of the second, Marsh scored his first goal since Halloween to put Saint John ahead again.

In the third, and with Chicoutimi pressuring, Paquin-Boudreau scored with 3:24 remaining to send the match into overtime.

A couple minutes into the extra frame, Sam Povorozniouk scored but it was immediately called off due to incidental contact with Billia. But Povorozniouk did score in the shootout, along with Joseph, to give Saint John the extra point.

  • Saint John once again went with 11 forwards and seven defensemen. Dawson Theede (healthy), Austin Clapham (healthy), Julien Tessier (injury), Samuel Dove-McFalls (injury) and Matt Green (injury) were all out for the Sea Dogs.
  • Nico Blachman returned from his one-game suspension.
  • Kyle Ward has three goals this month and two in his past three games.
  • Sam Povorozniouk’s three-game goal streak officially came to an end.

The Sea Dogs host the Quebec Remparts at 7 p.m. on Thursday at Harbour Station.
