Wildcats tie road win record with 5-1 thumping of Saint John

Sunday, 10.26.2008 / 8:34 PM / News

The Canadian Press

The 2008-09 Moncton Wildcats wrote their name into the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League record books this weekend, accomplishing something the Quebec Remparts couldn't.

The Wildcats received goals from five different players en route to a convincing 5-1 victory over the Saint John Sea Dogs on Sunday.

The win gives Moncton (14-0-2-0) eight straight road wins to start the season, tying a 32-year-old record set by the 1976-77 Cornwall Royals. The Remparts failed in their attempt to tie the record on Saturday, losing 2-1 in a shootout against the Rimouski Oceanic.

The Wildcats are still undefeated in regulation and extended their current winning streak to seven games thanks to goals from Randy Cameron, Sasha Famin, Matt Lahey, Daniel Pettersson and Matt Brown. Moncton will attempt to break the record on November 8 in Halifax against the Mooseheads.

Elsewhere in the QMJHL, it was: Shawinigan 6, Drummondville 3; Acadie-Bathurst 4, Gatineau 2; Cape Breton 10, Baie-Comeau 5; Quebec 7, Lewiston 1; P.E.I. 3, Val-d'Or 2; and Montreal 7, Victoriaville 3.

At Saint John, N.B., Alex Grant had the lone marker for the Sea Dogs (9-7-1-0) near the end of the second period to pull Saint John within one, but the Wildcats responded with three goals in the first half of the third to chase Robert Mayer from the Sea Dogs' net.

Nicola Riopel made 35 saves to earn his 13th win of the season. Mayer stopped 22 shots and Karel St-Laurent made two saves for Saint John.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
