Scotiabank Centre (10,595) ~ Halifax, NS

For the first (and only) time this season the Quebec Remparts visit the Scotiabank Centre to take on your Halifax Mooseheads. This will also be the first Thursday night hockey game of the year and your Mooseheads will be looking to start another win streak after getting revenge over the Acadie-Bathurst Titan on Tuesday evening for the previous game. There will be a few extra Nova Scotians on the ice tonight as the Remparts have three NS born players on their team. Halifax is not doing that bad so far this season despite being a very young team. The Mooseheads were the second team to score 100 goals after getting five on Tuesday and are going against the third best goaltender in terms of goals against average; Callum Booth. Should be a battle of goalies tonight.
