Islanders coming home after winless road trip of Quebec


Former Halifax Mooseheads forward Maxim Trepanier scored the winner Sunday on a second period power play as the Shawinigan Cataractes defeated the Charlottetown Islanders 3-1.

The Islanders lost all three games of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League road trip to fall to 27-25-5-0. The Gordie Dwyer-coached Cataractes are 26-28-0-0.

Marc-Antoine Pépin gave Shawinigan a 1-0 lead 3:27 into the contest and Trepanier doubled the lead heading to the third.

Noah Laaouan from Nikita Alexandrov and Thomas Casey got the Isles back to within one 13 minutes into the third, but Charles Beaudoin scored the empty-net goal to ice it.

Charles-Antoine Lavallee stopped 23 shots for the win while Jacob Goobie made 22 saves in the loss.

Shawinigan was 1-for-5 on the power play and killed all four of the Islanders chances with the man advantage.

The Islanders will try to snap their four-game losing streak Saturday when they travel to northern New Brunswick to play the league-worst Acadie-Bathurst Titan (10-37-3-4) at 7 p.m.
