Struggles continue as Mooseheads close road trip with loss to Huskies

The struggles continued for the Halifax Mooseheads on Saturday night, with the Herd coming up short in the final game of a lengthy Quebec road trip.

The Huskies started red hot, outshooting Halifax 22-6 in the first period.

Rouyn-Noranda would lead 2-0 after the first on goals from Louis-Philippe Fontaine and Thomas Verdon, a score that could have been even higher if not for the strong play of Mooseheads’ goalie Mathis Rousseau.

Halifax defended better in the second but were still outshot 10-5 by the Huskies. The score remained at 2-0 after period number two and that would be the final.

The Mooseheads have now lost five of their last six games as the team struggles after a dominant start to the season.

Halifax will be back in action at home on Friday as Gatineau pays a visit to the port city. Catch all the action on CityNews 95.7, starting with the pre-game show at 6:30 p.m.
