Olympiques lose a tough one
Eagles 5, Olympiques 4
The Gatineau Olympiques’ drive for a top four finish is alive in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League standings, but it didn’t get any easier after a tough loss in Cape Breton.
The Olympiques rebounded from a two-goal deficit but a goal by Cameron Darcy, with 11 seconds remaining, lifted the Screaming Eagles to a 5-4 win Saturday night in Cape Breton.
Cape Breton jumped out to a 2-0 lead on goals by Bradley Lalonde and Raphael Corriveau, until Gatineau’s Martin Reway replied.
The Olympiques trailed by two goals on a late period goal by Julien Pelletier.
But Gatineau closed the gap in the second on goals by captain Taylor Burke and Alexis Pepin, before Cape Breton’s Charles-Eric Legare restored the lead late in the second on the power play.
Ottawa Senators draft Vincent Dunn tied it 3:54 into the third period, but Gatineau could not get another.
