We can pretend that Cantonniers Magog and the Lions du Lac St-Louis are waging a battle with no thank you since the beginning of the final best of seven in Midget AAA du Quebec and the magogoise training could very well be the one in the driver’s seat rather than the opposite, Felix Potvin was the first to assert that pass close to hockey, it does not count.
Behind 1-3 in the series, the Magogois will face elimination Tuesday night. The Lions are one win to avenge their defeat in four games last year in the final against the Châteauguay Grenadiers.
“Lions are opportunists and it is certain that it is disappointing to realize that there is always one single goal separating us after 60 minutes. He does not lack much for the wind changes from the side. We must find a way for that single goal is on our side, because you win at your fingertips hockey, it’s not enough. It’s the end result that counts. By cons, we are far from desperate. The guys are playing very good hockey. We will not change our game plan. You just get our key around their net, “said the mentor of Cantonniers.
In five series, Cantonniers were also up against the wall in the second round against the Blizzard du Séminaire St-François. “We had to win the last two games of the series and the guys had responded well. We’ve been there, “says Potvin.
Concerning the health of Felix Miller and Hugo Lamarche, everything indicates that it is only a few hours before the start of the game we will know whether they will be in uniform.
Scorer of the season in a team, working evening Olivier Mathieu was not long Sunday. The hockey Drummondville was ejected from the game on 16 minutes game for checking from behind. The latter is still wanted at the dawn of the fifth part.
“I believe I have let down my teammates. There were already two other attackers out of alignment. My place was on the ice to help my teammates who have never abandoned. They definitely deserved a better fate. I take a little while staff was told that I should not. I’ll turn the page, I do not have a choice, and now my goal is to help the team to cause a sixth game. They have two gains of more than us, but it quickly changes to hockey, “says Mathieu.
