– Le Drakkar in search of its first win in 2008 –
Drakkar attempt to register a first win in 2008, tonight, when he receives a visit from the Rimouski Oceanic on ice A of Henry Leonard Centre. Beaten 3-1 by the Chicoutimi Saguenéens Thursday , local players will try to bounce back after this very ordinary performance against their great rivals of the Saguenay. A performance that greatly displeased head coach Eric Dubois, who has not hesitated to impose an additional working session on Friday morning.
The degree of involvement was not raised in Chicoutimi and this had to happen . We had not played great games in our victories in Drummondville and Rimouski, took the trouble to remind the leader . Dubois expects a much more consistent effort on the part of his men. As if we had a strong December , it will do more. There are ways to win , and now I do not like the way we play.
Shootout victory over the Remparts Thursday night Oceanic comes to town for a doubleheader that begins tonight (1900 ) and will be completed tomorrow afternoon ( 16.00) . We’ll take the games one at a time and focus on our club , not the opponent. It is important to adjust and to work for three complete cycles . At the time these lines were written , the pilot of Drakkar had not yet decided who his starting goalie for the first game . Rookie Mathieu Leclair , who had done very well in the recent 3-1 win in Rimouski, should certainly see action during the weekend.
