Wildcats move into 1st with 8-5 win over Armada

Alexander Khovanov scored twice and Francis Langlois added his first career goal to lead the Wildcats to an 8-5 victory over the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada, Friday at Avenir Centre.

Zachary L’Heureux, Jeremy McKenna, Mika Cyr, Jakob Pelletier, and Mark Rumsey also scored for Moncton, which extended its winning streak to four games. The Armada saw its four-game winning streak come to an end.

L’Heureux opened the scoring four-and-a-half minutes into the game with a power play goal. Blainville-Boisbriand responded halfway through the first period, making it a 1-1 game after twenty minutes.

Khovanov restored the Wildcats’ lead two-and-a-half minutes into the second, followed a short time later by McKenna.

The Armada cut the deficit down to 3-2 near the six-minute mark, but Cyr and Pelletier found the net 57 seconds apart before the halfway mark of the period. Moncton led 5-2 after two periods.

Langlois’ first QMJHL goal came five minutes into the third and turned into the eventual game-winner. Khovanov added a power play strike in the middle of the period.

With Moncton leading 7-5 late in the game, Rumsey wrapped up the scoring.

Goalie Charles-Antoine Lavallee earned the win in goal with 18 stops. Khovanov and L’Heureux finished the game with three points each. Jordan Spence and Elliot Desnoyers contributed two assists apiece.
