The Lions emulated the bad habits of the Montreal Canadiens in Trois-Rivières on Sunday, conceding two quick goals to eventually lose 3-2 to Worcester Railers.
Nick Fea opened the scoring just 46 seconds into the first period. He then saw teammate Billy Jerry double the visitors’ lead at the 2:05 mark.
However, the Mauricie club managed to stop the bleeding. However, he faced goalkeeper Henrik Tikkanen, author of 36 saves in the win. Only D-Jay Jerome and Cédric Montminy hit the target at his expense.
Meanwhile, his opposite number, Joe Vrbetic, gave way three times in 30 shots. Blake Christensen scored the winning goal in the second period.
It was a seventh consecutive defeat for Marc-André Bergeron’s side, who will look to return to victory when Reading Royals visit on Wednesday. The Railers, who have picked up just their second win in their last 10 games, host the same side on Friday.
