This was the Gatineau Olympiques first game in this fourth protected environment of the QMJHL held in Quebec City. For the occasion, the Rimouski Oceanic were the local team.

The game was off to a quiet start for both teams who seemed to study each other in their first confrontation of the season. At the halfway point, the shots on goal were only two to one in the Olympiques favor.

Both teams each had a power play but were unable to capitalize on their opportunities.

2nd period

The Olympiques started the period with a man advantage but were still unsuccessful to score. The two teams then traded a few scoring chances but both goalies, Rémi Poirier and Creed Jones, remained strong.

With just over three minutes to go in the second period, former Olympiques goalie Jones was the first to miss a low shot from Kieran Craig who took advantage of the traffic to make it 1-0.

3rd period

Similar to the other periods, the third period was quiet offensively but several good body checks were given. Finally, with almost eight minutes to go, William Dumoulin scored his sixth of the season with a precise shot over Rémi Poirier’s shield. The game was tied at 1-1.

Overtime Period

It was a dream scenario for the Olympiques during this overtime. The Oceanic hit the horizontal goal post and Isaac Belliveau then took off with the puck and outsmarted Creed Jones to give the Olympiques the victory over his former team.
