Happy with the result
The guardian of Châteauguay was also all smiles when he met with members of the media after the game.

“You need to be disciplined,” said the coach of the Tigers Louis Robitaille. I think it is a bad punishment. They opened the door. We did a good job shorthanded, they limited their chances, but the puck ended up on the palette of Lacombe and he scored a beautiful goal. It was not abandoned, we had chances until the very end. “
