Head coach Marc-André Bergeron and his Lions will be looking to bounce back after a trying three-game road trip to Utah. Trois-Rivières recorded only one victory, with the final two games going down as losses. The good news is that the Lions will have the support of their home fans to look forward to come this evening for their game against the Iowa Heartlanders. After a disappointing start to the season at home (1-4-1), the Lions have rebounded and are currently experiencing their best streak of the season with three consecutive victories at Colisée Vidéotron. As for the Heartlanders, head coach and general manager Derek Damon's players endured a poor start to the season with only one victory in 12 games. However, the Iowans arrive in Trois-Rivières on a roll having won their last three games.
