Holy crap... the Drakkar are out and my secret boyfriend Keven Veilleux of the Rimouski Oceanic (formerly of the Victoriaville Tigres) is totally mostly to blame with his 2 goals and 2 assists. The Drakkar have lost tonight's game 5-2 and the series 4-1. All the defense in the world could not help them in the face of offense...and to think we wanted Lessard. I guess defense does not always win championships. Oh my, I can't believe that those words could even be typed by my fingers because I am a total whore for defense . The team that ended the regular season with 96 points goes out in 5 games to a team with only 67 points. Rimouski will be moving on and facing the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies in the second round of the QMJHL playoffs.
AND THE MOOSEHEADS WON. I caught the first two periods before a work related pot luck tore me away from my computer - and we were up 5-2. By the end it was 7-2. Justin Pender got another goal, and then Jake finally started to get things going by the end of the second. But the big name of the night was kindred spirit Colby Pridham with 3 goals and an assist- excuse me while I go rub myself with potatoes. I will have more to say later, I need to watch the third before I use my stumpy fingers to type more words. For now satisfy yourself with a picture of Colby Pridham, a ref (ugh) and some Tigres.
Sigh, it is almost as if we were there.
