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.
Remparts: 13-9-1-1 = 28 points (2nd in East division, 5th overall)
Mooseheads: 13-11-0-0 = 26 points (3rd in Maritimes division, 7th overall)
HAL: Maxime Fortier 44pts (15G & 29A), Nico Hischier 41pts (19G & 22A), Connor Moynihan 24pts (14G & 10A)
QUE: Philipp Kurashev 19pts (7G & 12A), Matthew Boucher 18pts (10G & 8A), Derek Gentile 16pts (9G & 7A)
Quebec is coming off 3-2 overtime victory on Sunday evening over Chicoutimi. Matthew Boucher led the Remparts with 2 goals, including the OT winner, at home while Callum Booth made 28 saves to get the win against the visiting Sagueneens.
Halifax is coming off a 5-3 win on Tuesday in the second match of a home and home series against Acadie-Bathurst. Max Fortier streatched his point streak to 6 games after picking up another two goals to lead the Mooseheads while Alexis Gravel stopped 23 of the Titan’s 26 shots to get the road win.
