Game 6: Another must-win for the Lions

It was mission accomplished on Saturday night: The Lions had to win to prolong their North Division semi-final series against the Newfoundland Growlers, and that’s exactly what they did with a thrilling 3-2 victory in front of an ecstatic Colisée Vidéotron crowd.The Growlers now hold a 3-to-2 series lead, with Game 6 and Game 7 (if necessary) to be played in St. John’s at the Mary Brown’s Centre.This will mark the Lions third visit to Newfoundland in the 2021-22 season. The team’s first trip resulted in two wins and one loss, with all three games having a one-goal margin of victory. Their second trip was less successful, with one win and three losses. And Game 1 and Game 2 of the playoffs both went to the Growlers.Head coach Éric Bélanger will be sure to preach to his players to take it one-game-at-a-time and to focus on the task at hand: To win Game 6. The team has momentum on its side what with having now defeated the Growlers twice in the three playoff games held in Trois-Rivières.

Puck drop tonight is 5:30 p.m.

The schedule for the remaining games of the best-of-seven series is as follows:Game 6 – Monday, May 2 at Newfoundland (5:30 p.m.)Game 7 (if necessary) – Tuesday, May 3 at Newfoundland (5:30 p.m.)Players to watch:Lions’ forward Alexis D’Aoust scored two goals on Saturday night to lead the Lions to victory.
