After two games over the weekend between the Mariners and Lions, the two teams matched up yet again on Wednesday night in Trois-Rivières. Starting the game on a high note, Mariners’ #12 Xander Lamppa scored 1:09 into the first period on Lions’ goalie Strauss Mann. Closer to the end of the period, at 17:08, Lions’ #15 Tyler Hylland responded with an unassisted goal, getting past Mariners’ goalie Brad Arvanitis. This was Hylland’s first professional goal. Both teams only received one penalty each; Mariners’ Fedor Gordeev at 3:30, and Lions’ Nicolas Guay at 5:43 for hooking. Both teams were called for penalties simultaneously in the second period. The first two were given very early into the second, only 18 seconds in. Fedor Gordeev received his second of the night, this time for roughing, and Lions’ Justin Ducharme was called for slashing. At 4:15, Mariners’ Connor Doherty and Lions’ Justin Ducharme were given matching roughing penalties. At 10:41 in the second, Maines’ Tyler Drevitch and Trois-Rivières’ Jakov Novak received matching penalties, also for roughing. Two penalties were also called near the end of the second, at 19:40, but both were given to the Lions. Jakov Novak received 2 minutes for cross-checking as well as 2 minutes for unsportsmanlike conduct.

Maine was able to gain a two-goal lead in the second following goals from #3 Gabriel Chicoine at 15:43 and #23 Alex Kile at 17:54. Chicoine’s goal was the second unassisted goal of the night. With his goal, Kile broke a Maine Mariners record for single-season points, this being his 74th. No penalties were called within this period, but there were a few goals scored. The first goal of the third period was again from Maine, this time from #19 Cameron Askew at 8:34. With exactly 5 minutes left in the game, the Lions decided to pull Strauss Mann, as they were trailing by 3 goals at this point. Maine was not able to score on the empty net, but at 18:40, Mariners’ #24 Adam Mechura was able to get one through Mann’s legs when he returned to the net. This would be the third unassisted goal of the game, one happening in each period. Only 16 seconds later, Lions’ Tyler Hylland would have his second professional goal, leaving the final score at 5-2 in favor of the Mariners.

The Mariners play again back in Portland this Friday night, where they will face the Worcester Railers.
