As strange as it may seem, the players of the Revolution in the Lac Saint-Louis should be happy to have “only” lost 6-0 to Granby Sunday afternoon. The best in all facets of the game, the Inouk have directed no less than 52 throws to the keeper Aidan Hosein.
“We played well for 60 minutes, and about 200 feet of the rink,” commented head coach and general manager Patrice Bosch.
“Despite our many injuries, we had to play three games in four days. This victory proves that we still had the energy. “
Also, having beaten the Braves de Valleyfield on two occasions, the Inouk have actually won one of the six points at their fingertips during this sequence.
Eleventh in the ranking of the LHJAAAQ, the Revolution was obviously overlooked for this duel for Inouk (3es). The logic has therefore been respected. Goalkeeper Hugo Duteau was pushed out of the 20 washers, to sign its first clean sheet in the uniform granbyen.
Recorded at the beginning of the second period, the purpose of Laurent Minville turned out to be one of victory. Stephen Bourdeau (his first in the LHJAAAQ), Ludovyk Caron (twice), Thomas Fredette, and Jeremiah Staff have also found the back of the net.
Used on the first trio, and numerical advantage, Caron seems to have upped his game the past few weeks. The attacker, a native of Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu has recorded eight points in his last eight games.
“Playing with [William] Leblanc and [Louis-Philippe] Denis gives me confidence. And being more confident, I am able to produce more, ” said the principal.
“With my size, I am also able to work in the bottom of the box to make room for my teammates. “
It should also be noted that the young Bourdeau has done a good job as a reservist, just as Samuel Michaud (pass), which is the same found on the second trio of Inouk.
“We think that these two players are part of the future of the team, they will join us full-time next season. We, therefore, wanted to give them a little bit of ice before the series, ” explained Bosch.
Vincent Lampron, Nicholas Nadeau and Leblanc are all collected two assists Sunday.
Supporters granbyens however, will have to wait before you see “Will The Thrill” beat the record of goals in Inouk. Leblanc remains in search of his 55th goal, which would allow him to match the mark established by Érik Longtin. It will be another opportunity to take the story next Friday, while the Flames of Gatineau will lead to the centre sportif Léonard-Grondin. “It is sure that one feels a bit of pressure. But as I said to Will, things will happen of themselves. If he thinks about it too much, it may be more difficult, ” said Caron.
Bosch does not cease to repeat it : he is anxious to be able to count on a club’s health. His prayers, however, have not been answered since attackers Raphaël Bouchard, and Christopher Morissette have recently been added to the injured list. Bouchard, however, could return to the game next weekend.
Samuel Nadeau and Simon Lavoie were suspended Sunday.
