The Canadiens played two road games on the weekend, dropping both but continuing to play well.
On Friday night the team traveled to Miramichi to play the Rivermen and came out on the short end of a 3-1 score. Seth Fillmore opened the scoring in the game (Sam Cameron and Isaac Billings) at 9:01 of the first, but Alex Beaulieu evened the score for the Rivermen with 4:11 to go on a power play.
Yan Plourde (on the power play) and Tristan Young scored a goal in the second and third periods respectively to give the Rivermen the win. Ryan Hale took the loss in nets stopping 22 of 25 shots. Daniel Vautour stopped 22 of 23 in the Rivermen net.
On Sunday the Habs traveled to Moncton to play the Flyers and stormed out to a 3-1 first period lead. Kari Belec opened the scoring 1:25 into the game for the Flyers, but three straight goals gave the Habs the lead. Peyton Hoyt (David Comeau), Matt Paul (Jonathan Cloutier and Peyton Hoyt) and Coutier all found the back of the net.
Four unanswered Flyer goals in the second, and one more in the third, led to the 6-3 loss. Liam Conrad and Alexandre Jacob each had power play goals, and Jared Ostroski added an even strength tally while Ryan Chiasson scored short handed, all in the second period. Conrad added another in the third.
The Canadiens were outshot 32-17 overall. Aidan Critchlow took the loss in net, while Maxim Landry and Julian Galloway split duties in the Moncton net.
