Frk scores in OT as Mooseheads rally to beat Huskies 5-4, take 2-0 series lead

HALIFAX - Martin Frk scored in overtime as the Halifax Mooseheads edged the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies 5-4 in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League playoff action Sunday.

Frk's power-play goal 7:12 into OT completed the comeback for Halifax, which took a 2-0 series lead.

Frk also scored in regulation for the Mooseheads, who also got goals from Andrew Ryan, Nathan MacKinnon and Jonathan Drouin.

Jean-Sebastien Dea, Marcus Power, Maxime St-Cyr and Sven Andrighetto scored for the Huskies.

Drouin opened the scoring with a short-handed goal just 1:09 into regulation, but Power tied the game just over two minutes later.

All four Rouyn-Noranda goals came in the first period and the Huskies led 4-2 until the third when Halifax stormed back. MacKinnon scored on the power play at 2:58 and Ryan sent the game to extra time with a goal at 13:19.

Mooseheads goaltender Zachary Fucale made 20 saves, while at the other end Alexandre Belanger stopped 30 shots.

The Huskies will host Game 3 Tuesday at the Arena Iamgold.

Quote of the Day

I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
