Game Recap

Belleville Sens begin road trip with 3-2 win over Rocket

October 27, 2022

Rourke Chartier played hero on Wednesday night, notching the game-winner with eight seconds left in regulation time as the Belleville Senators defeated the Laval Rocket 3-2 at Place Bell.

After a scoreless first period, Belleville opened the scoring at the 3:04 mark of the middle stanza when Egor Sokolov found the back of the net for his first of the season after he beat Cayden Primeau with a heavy shot on the powerplay. Laval answered as Anthony Richard tied the contest with the man advantage late in the frame. 

The Rocket took their first contest lead through a Brandon Gignac tally mid-way point of the third before Roby Jarventie equalized for the Senators, capitalizing on a one-timer during a 5-on-3 power play. Belleville continued their late push as the aforementioned Chartier secured the road victory, scoring in the game’s dying seconds. 

The Belleville Senators are back in action Friday night when they continue their three-game road trip against the Milwaukee Admirals at 7:00 CDT.

Head Coach Troy Mann: “Our game progressively got better, and with the amount of guys that are all of a sudden out of the lineup, I thought it was a gritty effort, and there was no quit.”
