On Friday, Jan 4th the Lynx were back in action after their Christmas break, but too much turkey may have made them sluggish as they failed to get any momentum going against the strong Temiscaming Titans.
“The game was all Titans from start to finish,” acknowledges Lynx representative Mathieu Gaudette, eager to put the episode behind them. “We are turning the page and ready for the new year.”
The Lynx were still plagued with notable absences, this time due to travel issues; Tshenepeu Thirnish, Éric Paquette, Lucas Nevrencan, Nick Salazar - all defensemen - weren’t able to attend the game. Also missing were an injured Marcus Blackned and Shipu Andrews, who was finishing up his suspension.
“With all of these key pieces missing, it surely hurt us. We didn’t play the game we know they can play. They were tired and made a lot of errors. It happens when you’re down so many players,” says Gaudette.
The final tally was 12-4 for the Titans.
Lynx netminders Chase Fairbarn and Victor Schneuwly shared goaltending duties, as newly signed goalie Moritz Ertl will have his first full week of practice this week and should be hitting the game ice soon.
Over the break, the Lynx shipped 21-year old GMHL All-Star and their #1 goalie, Giulio Costa to the Ville-Marie Pirates in exchange for picks in the upcoming GMHL draft. The netminder has been a brick wall for the Lynx during his tenure with the team.
