The Lynx fell in a 9-3 blowout, and Assistant Coach Mathieu Gaudette acknowledged that his club had a weak game. “Not only did we face the offensive powerhouse in the Titans, but it seemed we played against the refs too, being down two guys within the first two minutes of game play. We had a hard time getting going... It was our goaltender Alec St. Georges’ first game and he played very well, but unfortunately our defense wasn’t there to help him out from puck drop to the end game buzzer.”
Coach Dan Tremblay didn’t make excuses for his crew, either. “The boys didn’t follow or stick to the game plan and it showed with the outcome of this high-scoring affair.”

The Lynx won by a whopping 14-2, with over 120 shots on net while only allowing only 12. It was a solid performance in front of a good hometown crowd.
