Solid team defence, shut out goaltending and a red hot powerplay spelled success for the Moncton Wildcats as they smothered the Halifax Mooseheads 3-0, in front of 5,756 at the Coliseum.

Another strong performance from Yannick Veilleux  lead the Cats to their 16th win of the season.

Veilleux scored twice and assisted on another, Dmitri Jaskin netted the other as the Wildcats scored twice on the powerplay, while outshotting the Mooseheads 42-25. Allain Saulnier and Jonathon Nabonne each chipped in with a pair of assists.

Halifax loses, in regulation, for just the 3rd time in 25 games this season . The Wildcats win their 3rd straight, while snapping the Mooseheads  4 game win streak.

Alex Dubeau was solid in his battle versus Halifax’s Zac Fucale. For Dubeau it’s his 2nd shutout of the season.

So an excellent weekend for the Wildcats, beating 2 teams( Halifax, Baie-Comeau)who are  ahead of them in the standings, outscoring them 9-5, outshooting them 78-50 and scoring 5 times on the powerplay.  

Wildcats are off till Friday, when the host the Victoriaville Tigers at 7pm at the Coliseum
