The Halifax Mooseheads set a franchise record with a huge win over the Saint John Sea Dogs on Friday night. 

The win was Halifax's 18th straight game without a regulation loss, passing the record set by the 2013 Memorial Cup winning squad to get into the history books. 

And this one was never really in doubt. 

Halifax would open the scoring in the first on a breakaway marker from Logan Crosby, but Saint John's Brady Burns tied things up at one in the dying seconds of the opening frame. 

The second period was a better one for the Mooseheads, with Brody Fournier and Brady Schultz scoring just over a minute apart to give Halifax the 3-1 lead. 

Halifax's Josh Lawrence, a former Sea Dog, would extend the Herd's lead to three late in the second period. The goal was initially waved off by the referees but the call was overturned, much to the chagrin of the hometown fans. 

The Mooseheads kept on the pressure in the third period. Braden MacPhee's sixth goal of the season gave Halifax a healthy 5-1 lead halfway through the final frame. Owen Phillips added another to extend the lead to 6-1.

Josh Lawrence would add two late in the third to complete the hattrick, as the Mooseheads skated to an 8-1 win to set the new franchise mark. 

The teams will face off once again in Saint John on Saturday night. The puck drops at 7 p.m. and you can catch all the action on CityNews 95.7.
