D Carl Neill (#15 Sherbrooke vs. #2 Shawinigan)
After an inspiring win for the #15 underdogs Sherbrooke Phoenix, game two saw the Shawinigan Cataractes score three answered goals to win 3-2 coming back. Defenceman and captain Carl Neill still managed to assist on his team’s second goal while recording five hits.
That tells me that he is not afraid to use his 6-foot-3, 206-pound figure to use. Good for him. Neill now has a goal and two assists in the first two games of the series. Game three goes tonight, Tuesday, in Sherbrooke.
D Guillaume Brisebois (#14 Acadie-Bathurst vs. #3 Saint John)
Guillaume Brisebois’s team is in some trouble down 2-0 against the Saint John Sea Dogs. The defenceman and captain for the Acadie-Bathurst Titans was a minus-three in game two that saw the Titans lose 4-2.
Game three is currently underway in Acadie-Bathurst as I write. Update will be coming when the game is a final. Make sure to check back.
UPDATE: The Titans have lost 7-1, down 3-0 in the series now. Brisebois recorded one hit while falling to a minus-two.
C Dmitry Zhukenov (#10 Chicoutimi vs. #7 Cape Breton)
Russian centre Dmitry Zhukenov recorded an assist in his team’s game two win over the Cape Breton “Screaming Eagles”. Game three also goes tonight and Zhukenov will look to add to his totals.
Not-so-fun fact: Zhukenov had just two shots on net in the first two games of the series. Cause for concern, perhaps? Series goes to Chicoutimi tied 1-1.
