vs SNB
It’s the second game of the home and home series between your Halifax Mooseheads and the Saint John Sea Dogs. This happens to be the last matchup of the season between these two teams. On Thursday night, the Dogs came out on top in a goaltending battle in Saint John.  Mathieu Joseph and Joseph Veleno scored for the home team in the first game this week in a 2-0 loss for Halifax but Eric Brassard had a strong game, making 34 saves. Thursday was the 1st time that Kelly Bent and Bokondji Imama met since they fought back in December where Bent got 5 games and Imama was suspended for 20 games. The two didn’t take long to settle their differences, squaring off just 3 and a half minutes into the game. Though they won’t be making the playoffs this season, the Herd can play spoiler for other teams who are looking to get a good position in the standings so what kind of team will we see tonight?
