– Le Drakkar caught in a trap –

The hatch of Chicoutimi has again caused many problems in Baie-Comeau Drakkar , who lost 1-3 yesterday at the Centre Georges-Vézina in Chicoutimi. The hermetic local game and the lack of involvement of visitors largely explain this result.
The offensive machine Drakkar was limited to 24 shots on François Lévesque. Baie-Comeau also awarded 10 power plays , Chicoutimi enjoying on two occasions.

Pratique punitive

Dubois was not hiding to say that he did not appreciate the effort of his own.” No one stood in front of the net. You must salisses you a bit if you want to have opportunities . Instead of rest tomorrow (today) , we will train. The guys look like it is playing , they will watch practice .”

The Sags , which limited the Drakkar four shots in the first period , were the only ones to open the scoring in this commitment. Jacob Lagace took advantage of a scramble in front of the net to open the scoring . At 7:53 of the second , Matt Marquardt scored the easiest goal of his career during a penalty to his. Came to meet Lévesque in the corner of the rink , the latter flatly delivered the puck, he only had to push in an abandoned cage.

Saguenéens however responded with two goals in two minutes at the end of engagement. Nicolas Deschamps managed to escape after a long pass right in front of Marco Cousineau with a high shot and Sébastien Rioux doubled his team’s lead with a quick shot. Dubois demanded a replay of the sequence , but the referee refused .

The title of defensive player returned to Marc-André Dorion , who had 12 points in 10 games in addition to maintaining a +9 .
