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.
