Following an exciting four-game homestand which earned the Belleville Senators a (3-1-0-0) record.

The Belleville Senators showed their resolve in the first meeting of a three-game set with the Laval Rocket at CAA Arena as they rallied from an early 2-0 deficit, scoring five unanswered times through Jonathan Aspirot, Angus Crookshank (2), Jacob Bernard-Docker and Egor Sokolov before the Rocket got one back on a late power play.
