Game Recap

Belleville Sens stay perfect in the shootout with win over Rocket

December 10, 2022

An Egor Sokolov shootout winner and a stellar performance from netminder Mads Søgaard in his return to the lineup helped lift the Belleville Senators to a 2-1 win over the Laval Rocket on Friday night at Place Bell.

After a scoreless first frame, Belleville opened the scoring at the 2:13 mark of the middle stanza on the power play when Rourke Chartier notched his 13th of the campaign. However, the Rocket equalized through a Tory Dello point shot to take a 1-1 score into the intermission.

Despite both sides generating offensive opportunities in the third period and overtime, neither club was able to capitalize, forcing a shootout session.

Belleville continued their dominance in the shootout this season as Søgaard turned aside all three attempts he faced, while the aforementioned Sokolov tallied for the third time in the shootout this season.
