The Océanic held off the Cataractes in a 5-3 loss

RIMOUSKI | The Rimouski Oceanic stood up to the Cataractes this Wednesday in Shawinigan, but it wasn’t enough to stop the winning streak of the Mauricie team, which obtained a 10th consecutive victory by a score of 5-3.

The locals scored their 5and goal as the Océanic withdrew goalkeeper Patrik Hamrla to replace him with a 6and attacking and trying to tie the game. The 20-year-old veteran Pierrick Dubé, the former Remparts, scored two goals and added an assist for the winners. The reply came from Luka Verreault, Frédéric Brunet and Alexandre Blais, with his 1st in career.

The Cats opened the scoring

The Cats opened the scoring in the 7and minute when Olivier Nadeau (23and) seized on the return of Mavrik Bourque to beat Gabriel Robert who had just made quite a save against the Cats captain. Less than two minutes later, Pierrick Dubé (4and) doubled the local lead on a magnificent three-way exchange with Charles Beaudoin and Daniel Agostino.

The penalties to the Cats allowed the Océanic to regain momentum in the second half of the first period. Julien Béland went there with a good push in the enemy zone and Luka Verreault (16and) took the opportunity to beat goalkeeper Charles-Antoine Lavallée in the top corner, from short distance and falling, to reduce the gap to one goal.

Two missed penalty shots

Lots of action in the second half. The Océanic first tied the game at 2-2 at the start of the engagement when Frédérik Brunet beat goaltender Lavallée by bypassing the opposing net. Maxim Coursol was an accomplice. Subsequently, the Océanic obtained two penalty shots in a few minutes without being able to score. Cam Thomson missed the target then Liam Kidney was blocked by goaltender Lavallée. After a few skirmishes, the Cataractes took advantage of a power play to regain a 3-2 lead on the 2and of the match by Dubé who drew on receipt of the face-off circle to beat Patrik Hamrla, who came to relieve Gabriel Robert at the start of the second period.
