In a key division match-up, the Huskies couldn’t hold a 3-1 lead entering the third period and lost to the Foreurs, 4-3. Nikita Kucherov was scoreless for the second time in three games, though he had a four-goal game squeezed in between his 0-point performances. Fellow Russian Lightning prospect Artem Sergeev (pictured) was plus-1 with no points for Val-d’Or, who pulled within one point of Rouyn-Noranda for second in the TELUS West Division. Cedric Paquette’s Armada leads the division.
