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.
I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
