The month of December has been a productive one for Stefan Fournier.

Fournier's streak started all the way back on November 26th.

Brandon Hynes scored twice for the Tigres (24-13-2), Angelo Miceli had a goal and two assists while Philippe Hudon and Yannick Dube added single goals to round out Victoriaville's scoring.

Michael Chaput scored the only goal for the Cataractes (26-10-4), who had their winning streak stopped at six games.

David Honzik made 24 saves for the win while Alex Dubeau stopped 30 of 33 shots through two periods. Gabriel Girard came on in relief to play thethird period and allowed two goals on 13 shots.

Victoriaville went 1-for-2 on the power play as Shawinigan failed to score on three chances with the man advantage.
