Maineiacs free fall continues in Halifax

Things just keep getting worse for the Lewiston Maineiacs as they fall for the 12th straight game, this time to a team heading in the opposite direction as the Halifax Mooseheads lit up Lewiston, 7-3, in front of 4,751 at the Halifax Metro Centre on Saturday night.

Special teams proved to the difference as Halifax went 4-for-9 with the man advantage in the game.

After a scoreless first period where the Mooseheads outshot the Maineiacs 15-7, both offenses found the back of the net in the second period.

At 2:29, Gerard Grant notched his 12th goal of the season on the power play.

Jessyko Bernard gave Halifax the 2-0 lead at 4:18 of the period.

The lead was extended to 3-0 when Tomas Knotek found the back of the net for the eighth time this season.

Former Halifax Moosehead Alexis Piette finally put Lewiston on the board with 6:59 remaining in the period.

Pascal Amyont stretched the lead back to three goals, at 4-1, with 3:34 to play in the second period.

Alex Lemieux gave the Mooseheads a 5-1 lead at 6:05 into the final period. Travis Randall and Charles Bety scored 33 seconds apart midway through the period, giving Halifax a 7-1 lead.

The Maineiacs managed to get a pair of consecutive power play goals from Alexander Beaton and Billy Lacasse.

“We were very tentative with the puck,” Maineiacs head coach Don MacAdam said.

Lewiston Maineiacs’ netminder Adrien Lemay made 30 saves on 37 chances. Mathieu Corbeil-Thériault of the Halifax Mooseheads made 20 saves in the loss.

Lewiston was 2-for-6 on the power play.
