QMJHL
Lewiston MAINEiacs 2 @ Halifax Mooseheads 3
D Michael Ward, LEW: 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM, 1 SOG

Ward’s assist came on the power play. I watched the third period of this game on Teles, and Ward played significant minutes, including PP, PK, and was on the ice at the end of the game with the goalie pulled. He also had a good rush and two solid hits in the third. Several Q games appear to be available to view for free via www.lhjmq.qc.ca.
