BATHURST, N.B. - Christophe Boivin forced extra time then scored again in a shootout to lift the Acadie-Bathurst Titan to a 4-3 win over the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies in the lone Quebec Major Junior Hockey League game Thursday.
Adam Stevens also scored in the shootout while Titan goalie Jacob Brennan stopped both Huskies shooters.
Boivin tied the game at three on the power play at 15:26 in the third period after goals by Scott Oke and Adam Chapman for the Titan (13-14-2). Brennan finished the game with 21 saves.
Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
