It’s going to take a lot to overcome a 3-0 series deficit. But if anyone can do it, it could be Michael Frolik and his Rimouski Oceanic.
Despite the lopsided series lead for the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies, the Oceanic have been in every single game until the very end. After two overtime losses, Rimouski loss a 4-3 affair Tuesday night.
Down 3-0 after just one period of play, Rimouski scored the next three as Frolik’s second of the playoffs tied the score 7:36 into the third period. But once again Rouyn-Noranda’s Hugo Carpentier put a stop to the comeback attempt, scoring with 5:58 left in the game for his seventh of the playoffs and second game-winner of the series.
