Moose Sweep Home & Home Series

Newly acquired Frederic Aube helped his new team to a big victory over last place Moncton Wildcats on Friday evening at the Scotiabank Centre. Aube scored the first goal of the game around the eight minute mark which prompted the fans in attendance to throw their stuffed animals onto the ice. Tonight’s match against the Cats was the Mooseheads annual Teddy Bear Toss game and because of it, Eastlink TV decided to come to town and broadcast it. Halifax got out to a fast start against their divisional rivals, leading 3-0 after 20 minutes. The team had 22 shots in the first. Aube also helped Max Fortier get his 20th goal of the season during the period while Raphael Lavoie scored his second goal since returning to the team. Moncton made it interesting in the middle frame scoring twice in 21 seconds more than half way into the period. Nico Hischier scored shortly after to clinch the deal for the home team, he also recorded a shorthanded goal in the third period. It was Hischier’s first game since returning from the World Juniors, his participation of which was recognized before puck drop.
