VICTORIAVILLE | The Quebec Remparts were unable to protect a priority of a goal late in the game, en route to a defeat of 5-4 in overtime to face the Tigers on Friday in Victoriaville.
Advantage of digital, Egor Serdyuk has settled the debate by jumping on a back shot to give the victory to the Tigers.
After a goal by Darien Kielb, who launched the visitors ahead for the first time in the match with five minutes remaining in the third period, the Remparts saw the victory slip through their fingers when Alex DeGagné left alone in front of Tristan Side-Cazenave has tied it up 4-4 with 32 seconds to égrainer to the dial.
“We have inadequately protected the net for the tying goal, pointed out head coach Patrick Roy. Theo (Rochette) and Cole (Cormier) would have to be the best at protecting the net. In such a situation, the players must be driven by a sense of urgency and be willing to sacrifice. This is unacceptable.”
“I have to review the sequence that led to the punishment in extension but Dubé (Pierrick), Rochette and Schives (Dylan) have had a very long presence and we would have had to be able to earn our territory a few times, to pursue Roy. We should have won this game.”
The Walls have had a bad start. “We were very ordinary in the first 35 minutes,” said Roy. Without our keeper, there would be no match because we have given ten chances to score. In the last five minutes of the 2nd, we have been very good and we were excellent in the 3rd. Overall, there has not been a big game and there is no reason that it has not done better.”
On his return to Victoriaville, where he worked three seasons, Tristan Side-Cazenave accepted evil this setback. “It is frustrating, has charged the bouncer of 20 years. We had victory and we have escaped. You can’t be happy. We started badly in the game, and Patrick spent the message in the intermission.”
During the first time period, the organization of the Tigers took advantage of a pause to enter a video of Side-Cazenave when he wore the colours of the formation of Bois-Francs. “It is heart-warming, he expressed. I was glad to see it. As for the match, I didn’t felt anything special. Victoriaville will always have a place in my heart, but I’m really happy to Québec and it helps to forget Victo.”
On the side of the Tigers, Louis Robitaille has welcomed the return of his troupe. “I loved the resilience and the character of the guys,” said the head coach. Even if we ended up being late a goal late in the game, the players remained calm. He had to find a way to go get at least a point. Two, it’s even better.”
“We were in control of this match, to continue Robitaille, but we brought them back by committing mistakes of softness.”
Thomas Caron was serving the last of a suspension of two parties. The attacker the Walls will return to the game, Sunday in Rimouski… Mikhail Abramov and Brooklyn Kalmikov have obtained respectively a point in a 10th and 9th consecutive game.

A summit for Félix Paré
With 15 goals, Félix Paré knows its season the most productive since his debut in the circuit Courteau, but Louis Robitaille wants it to retain the same identity.
“Even if Felix had his best season at the level of goals, he should not depart from the identity that allows him to succeed,” explained the head coach of the Victoriaville Tigers. “Felix has grown up with the Tigers and he has been through storms. At 19, he has matured and learned his role. He blocks shots, does well with the details, and it is a role that is difficult to value at a young age. “
With 30 points at the counter before the game Friday night, the attacker of 6 ‘ 2 ” and 217 lbs makes its presence felt at several levels. “He knows a season dazzling on and off the ice, was praised Robitaille. It is a leader. It does very well shorthanded and defends his teammates. He plays big minutes. I see myself in him. “
Two weeks ago, Paré has had a good encounter with Robitaille. “Louis wanted me to be better shorthanded,” said the choice of the 3rd round (38th overall) of the Tigers in 2016. “My game starts in disadvantage digital. If it goes well in this aspect, I’m going to find a good match. The small details make all the difference. In Quebec, during the last match, I blocked a shot late in the game while it was serving a punishment with a priority of one goal, and Louis was proud of it. “
“When I block a shot, the guys up on the bench, and this brings the energy, to pursue the proceeds of the Commanders (now the Knights) of Lévis. “Against Quebec, there’s a lot of emotion and intensity. There’s more of a punishment, and the unity of disadvantage to digital is still sought. I grew up looking at the Walls, and it is always fun to compete against them. “
