The Second Season Starts
Now it’s a date with the top team in the QMJHL. Two years ago the Maineiacs were in the Voltigeurs shoes. There are still three guys on the President’s Cup winning team. Danick Paquette, Patrick Cusack, and Peter Delmas were all apart of the team. I believe Alexander Beaton practiced with the team during the run.
Hopefully the three players will lead the way because they been in Drummondville’s shoes. They could probably relate what Drummondville is thinking on the facing the 16th seed.
Even though Lewiston lost against Chicoutimi on Sunday. It was great to see the team responded after the first period. They have confidence now if they get in a little hole or the calls aren’t going their way, to fight back and get back into the contest.
They still have to play a good game and not take the bad penalties. You need to limit the Voltigeurs chances on the man advantage because they convert about 33 percent of the time.
Peter Delmas needs to play like he did on Sunday. I was surprised how he stepped it up but he has been playing well since Don MacAdam became the bench boss. Whoever is in the net, they will need to steals the wins because the Maineiacs doesn’t have the fire power to outscore Drummondville in a 6-5 game
No matter what happens, hopefully the team can build off from this series for next season.
That’s My Take
