Lewiston, ME – Adrien Lemay has started all twelve all games for the Lewiston Maineiacs, and he hasn’t shown any signs wearing down as he stopped 39 shots en route to a 4-2 win over the Victoriaville Tigres in front 1,803 at the Androscoggin Bank Colisee.

Just as the penalty expired Victoriaville responded at 19:25 with a goal by Travis McIsaac.

Michael Chaput regained the two goal lead for Lewiston, and the eventual game winner just past the two minute mark of the second period.

Alexis Piette added his sixth goal of the season at 3:50 of the third period. Sebastien Trudeau and Samuel Carrier were credited with assists on the goal.

Andrej Nestrasil kept Victoriaville in the contest, cutting Lewiston’s lead in half with 6:20 to play in the game, but that was as close as the Tigres would get.
