SHAWINIGAN, Que. – The Acadie-Bathurst hit the road for a tough road trip that would see them play three games in three nights. First up they paid a visit the Shawinigan Cataractes on Thursday night.
Just under seven minutes into the game Max-Antoine Melancon opened the scoring for the Cataractes but former Cataracte William Champagne responded for the Titan 22 seconds later. At 8:39 Mikael Robidoux restored the Shawinigan lead with his third of the season as the home team lead 2-1 after the first period.
In the second period the Titan found the back of the net twice to take the lead. Mathieu Desgagnes evened the score at two goals apiece at the 11:57 mark followed by Anderson MacDonald’s go-ahead marker at 18:32. Bathurst would take a 3-2 edge into the intermission.
Things went downhill in the final 20 minutes as Shawinigan got goals from Robidoux and Leon Denny to capture a come-from-behind 4-3 victory and steal two points out from under the visiting Titan.
