The Olympiques record their 16th consecutive victory!

GATINEAU – The Olympiques began the first of a two-game series last night against the Chicoutimi Saguenéens, with 4081 fans gathered at the Slush Puppie Centre for the occasion.

At the end of the first period, Zach Dean directed the puck behind the net which bounced off the stick of Olivier Nadeau. The Olympiques’ captain took advantage of the situation to open the scoring and register his 18th of the season on the sequence. The Olympiques went into the locker room after the first 20 minutes with a 1-0 lead and were outshot 18-3.

With only 32 seconds left in the second period, Tristan Luneau took a clearance from an opposing defenseman and fired a powerful shot on goal for his 17th goal of the season.

The Saguenéens would reduce the gap at 5:59 in the 2nd but 27 seconds later, Luneau controlled the disc in offensive territory and left it behind for Sam Savoie who sent the puck towards the net to give his team a two goal lead. At the end of the second, Olivier Nadeau scored his second of the game to give his team a two-goal lead before entering the dressing room for the second intermission. 4-2 Gatineau after 40 minutes of play.

8th game with more than 5 goals

With a little more than a minute left in the 3rd period, Zach Dean serves a perfect pass from behind to Vincent Maisonneuve who beats the goalie with a powerful shot to score his 2nd of the season and the 5th of the night for the men from the Outaouais. It’s the 8th consecutive game with more than 5 goals for the Olympiques, going back to February 11th against the 67’s when Gatineau won by a score of 4-1.

However, the offensive fest was not over at the Slush Puppie Centre. At 5:04 in the 3rd, Isaac Belliveau sent the puck into the slot. Antonin Verreault recovered and sent the puck behind the goalie to make it 6-2 in favor of the Gatineau team.

A few minutes later, Cole Cormier would go one-on-one and draw the opposing defenseman out of the way to give the puck to Cam Macdonald, who would find himself completely in front of the goalie. Macdonald snuck the puck between the pads of the Sags goalie, Antonin Verreault picked up his 3rd point of the game on the sequence.

Cole Cormier gives the fans some Big Macs!

With less than a minute left in the game, Cole Cormier wanted to give the fans another gift as he took a shot from an almost impossible angle that found the back of the net. The ‘Piques won by a score of 8-2.

A 16th consecutive win!

Last night’s win marks the 16th consecutive victory for Louis Robitaille’s team who will be in action tonight against the same Saguenéens, game that starts at 7pm.
