Oil Kings beat Sea Dogs in overtime at Memorial Cup

Wiebe threw a cold shower on the spectators in New Brunswick after an exciting extra period. He beat goaltender Nikolas Hurtubise with a shot over his left shoulder to get his triple.

He is an important member of our team, a power forward with good skating and good shooting. He can do a lot of things, Oil Kings head coach Brad Lauer said. He works hard and does things well. Tonight, he was rewarded for all that.

The Oil Kings (0-1-0-1) thus prevented the Sea Dogs (1-0-1-0) from confirming their place in the semi-finals. The Western champions have two points in the standings after two games, while the host team has four.

The intensity increased in this third game of the tournament, with the sense of urgency already felt on both sides.

It’s heartbreaking for our team. She worked so hard, said Sea Dogs head coach Gardiner MacDougall. But we can retain many positive elements.

Josh Lawrence and Raivis Kristians Ansons each had a goal and an assist. William Dufour also moved the ropes for the Sea Dogs (1-0-1-0), who went down two goals in the first period. Hurtubise made 27 saves.

We liked to comment, we bounced. We liked the commentary, we showed character. But you have to avoid the penalty bench. We gave up two buts when we were outnumbered. It hurts. »

On the side of the Oil Kings (0-1-0-1), Carter Souch also recorded a goal and two assists. Sebastian Cossa stopped 36 shots.

The Oil Kings also overcame a poor performance in a 4-3 loss to the Shawinigan Cataractes on Tuesday.

Our performance [mardi] was unacceptable,” said Oil Kings forward Carter Souch, who scored a goal and added two assists against the Sea Dogs. We needed everyone tonight and we put in a full effort for almost 70 minutes.

Wiebe, on the power play, and Souch had given the Oil Kings the lead early in the game, but Ansons and Lawrence brought everyone back to square one with two goals within 25 seconds.

Dufour then gave the Sea Dogs the lead midway through the first frame with a low mitt side shot. Wiebe, however, returned to the charge in the second period, once again on the numerical superiority.

Although the recovery showed that his clearance had grazed the bay window before disappearing into the crowd, Yan Kuznetsov found himself on the disabled bench for having postponed the match when Wiebe scored the equalizer.

Hurtubise a game of chance a few times in front of the Sea Dogs net. He saw shots from Brendan Kuny and Simon Kubicek ringing off the posts.

For his part, Cossa was solid after the first half. He received a good helping hand from Kaiden Guhle early in the third period when the defender intercepted a pass thanks to a nice reply when the Sea Dogs attacked with two against the goaltender.

The two goalkeepers were the stars in overtime until Wiebe settled the dispute.

Thursday, the Shawinigan Cataractes, champions of the QMJHL, will face the Hamilton Bulldogs, champions of Ontario.
