“We have to give credit to Rimouski. They dominated us from A to Z. Our level of competition is not acceptable. After January 10, we will return to base. We need to practice, but we lacked conviction and that is unacceptable,” commented Sags head coach Yannick Jean.

The Océanic totally dominated the first period as indicated by the shooting number of 18 against 5. Sags goaltender Charles-Antoine Lavallée was very solid, but he would surely like to see Charles's routine line shot Side that turned out to be the sole purpose of the initial engagement. He then resisted against Jacob Mathieu on a penalty shot.

The Océanic won second

The Océanic doubled their lead midway through the second period on a power play. Luke Verreault grabbed a loose puck from the mouth of the opposing net to score his 10th goal of the season, assisted by William Dumoulin and Luke Coughlin. Three minutes later, Julien Béland (14th) went there with a nice individual push to bring the score to 3-0.

At the start of the third period, Jacob Mathieu (8th) skilfully redirected Alexander Gaudio's pass to beat the Sags goalkeeper. The visitors responded when Étienne Tremblay-Mathieu brought to life the beautiful staging of Thomas Bégin, on reception. Midway through the engagement, Alexander Gaudio made it 5-1 on a penalty throw. Jan Sprynar (16th) added a 6th goal for the hosts on a breakaway created by a clever pass from Frédéric Brunet.

"A good 60 minutes"

"It's a very good performance. A good 60 minute game. We moved our feet and apart from a few little streaks we were consistent. The guys play together. Once again, we have six different scorers, which is our strength,” analyzed Océanic head coach Serge Beausoleil.

And bref

Defender Mathis Gauthier was suspended for two games for kneeing last Sunday against a Voltigeurs player. Spencer Gill took his place in the lineup. Serge Beausoleil made another change as Quinn Kennedy was called up to relieve the injured Lyam Jacques. Cory MacGillivray was left out. Patrik Hamrla got a 5th straight start. His vis-à-vis was the 20-year-old veteran Charles-Antoine Lavallée.

The Océanic will start a three-game streak in as many days in the Maritimes on Friday in Charlottetown.
