QMJHL: Montreal Juniors Bounce Back with 6-1 Victory Vs Rouyn-Noranda Huskies

Gary WhittakerCorrespondent IJanuary 29, 2009

Playing in their second game in as many nights, the Juniors faced off against divisional opponents the Rouyn Noranda Huskies on Wednesday night.

After being shut out the night before by Val-d'Or, the Juniors offense came back to life in their 6-1 win over the Huskies.

The Juniors scored two goals in the span of two minutes in the first period, with both Guillaume Asselin and Toni Ritter beating Huskies goalie Mickael Audette. The Huskies would quickly get themselves on the board while Junior Luke Adam was in the box, as Jeff Desjardins saw his 16th goal of the season beat Juniors net-minder Jake Allen.

Juniors captain Matt Fillier would soon restore the two-goal lead, as he found the back of the net for his 12th goal of the season, at the 9:59 mark of the second. The Juniors offense kept clicking with Jérémy Gouchie scoring his 11th goal.

Angelo Esposito, already with two assists on the night, scored his 19th goal of the season, 1:45 into the third, to bring the Juniors to a 5-1 lead. The offense wouldn't end there, as Luke Adam tallied the Juniors sixth and final goal of the night with his team leading 22nd goal.

Montreal now has a record of 25-20-1-2.

The Juniors will play their final road game of their extended trip on Saturday night as they face the Quebec Remparts. They will then take to the Verdun Auditorium ice when they return home to face the Halifax Mooseheads on Monday February 2 at 7:00pm.
