vs BAT

On the road again. Your Halifax Mooseheads will travel to New Brunswick to take on the Acadie-Bathurst Titan tonight for the team’s first of 5 road games in the month of November. The Herd will also participate in a Maritime 3-in-3 this weekend, visiting Bathurst and Moncton then hosting Saint John on Saturday. Despite the QMJHL only being 2 months into the 2015-16 regular season, tonight’s game will be the fifth between these two teams. Through the first 4 games, each team has two wins and two losses, as well as a shutout each. Bathurst and Halifax are pretty evenly matched this season with both going through rebuilds, however the Titan’s scoring is more spread throughout the team. Acadie-Bathurst has the most players in the Q with 10 or more points at 11, while the Mooseheads only have 5. Both teams will be looking to continue the momentum that they got last weekend.

Overall Records
Titan: 7-13-2-0 = 16 points (6th in Maritimes division, 17th overall)
