RECAP: Sea Dogs Win 6-2

FINAL: Sherbrooke 2, Saint John 6
By Kevin Chambers | SN Staff

SAINT JOHN – On Friday night at Harbour Station, the Sea Dogs were looking to bounce back from a tough 4-3 overtime loss to the Quebec Remparts. It didn’t get any easier for Saint John as they faced off against a dangerous Sherbrooke Phoenix squad – but in the end, the pulled off a big 6-2 victory.

The Sea Dogs controlled much of the early going in this contest yet it was the Phoenix striking first when Nicolas Poulin banged home a loose puck past Marc-Antoine Turcotte at 6:24. The Sea Dogs dominated the period and were finally rewarded when Sam Povorozniouk scored his team leading 13th goal of the season at 14:31. Later in the opening period, some nice work by Adam Marsh and Joe Veleno ultimately resulted in a goal by Adam Bateman to give the Sea Dogs a 2-1 lead. The lead would be short lived, however, after Povorozniouk took a high sticking penalty at 17:47 and put the Sea Dogs in a four-on-three shorthanded situation. Guillaume Gauthier would knot the game at 2-2 at 17:58.

Dawson Theede came close to getting the second period off to a great start with his first QMJHL goal but clanked it off the post. Nico Blachman would not be denied though, scoring his first goal by tapping a loose puck past a down Alexandre Lagace at 8:23. Moments later, another first QMJHL goal, this time from Oliver Felixson, gave the Sea Dogs a 4-2 lead.

The Sea Dogs would extend their lead at the 4:36 mark of the third when Mathieu Joseph got one by Lagace, giving the Sea Dogs a three goal cushion. Saint John would strike again just 38 seconds later when Nathan Noel added to the onslaught, giving the Sea Dogs a 6-2 lead – and that would be how things would end.

  • Phoenix star forwards Daniel Audette and Kay Schweri along with defenseman Jeremy Roy all missed the game with injuries.
  • Scratches for the Sea Dogs: Samuel Dove-McFalls, Matt Green, Julien Tessier are all injured. Jason Bell and Austin Clapham were both healthy scratches for this contest.
