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.
That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
