They had to wait until the last game between the two teams this season to get their luck, but the Stockton Heat players finally found a way to beat the Laval Rockets.
This is the seventh and final duel between his two teams in 2021.
The success of Byron Froese made this game unique. With less than four minutes left in the third quarter, a player who played 48 games with the Montreal Canadiens in the 2017-18 season defeated Michael McNiven with an off-angle shot from the corner of the ice.
The Rockets goalkeeper then left the position of the sixth skater, but Eetu Tuulola ended up with an empty net.
Since April 10, 2019, this is McNevin’s first goal conceded in the American Hockey League.
Laval’s only scorer is Yannick Veilleux. In the second stage, the Saint-Hippolyte man deflected the shot from Jordan Weal’s angle to goalkeeper Garret Sparks. After a moment of success, Adam Rizicka equalized the score.
This part marked the career debut of defender Jacob Laguerrier. The Canadians’ fifth-round pick in 2019 (ranked 126th overall) is the Rockets’ third double guard Xavier Ouellet.
