Fences – Cataracts: Victory occurred William Rousseau

Shawinigan | There are fewer and fewer questions trying to determine who the trusted guy is in the Network for Remparts. Once again on Sunday night, William Russo was excellent in helping his team win 3-2 at the Waterfall in front of the raucous and hostile crowd at Jervis Auto Center in Shawinigan.

The Red Devils goalkeeper saved 26 of the 28 discs directed at him, and was particularly effective in the third game, where he was dominated by the waterfall who played with the force of desperation.

“When the weather is awful, don’t think. I was in front of the puck and the defensemen did a great job blocking shots. That’s why we went for that match,” said the goalkeeper humbly, who now has a 1.81 goal-to-average and 0.927 save ratio. In the playoffs so far.

“It helps a lot,” defender Louis Crever added of his convincing teammate’s work. You know that when you leave shots from outside, they’ll be there, just like the bouncing balls. I have a lot of faith in him and that makes the difference for a defender. »

After the playoffs began with an alternate system, Patrick Roy had no choice but to admit that the identity of the man he trusted was becoming increasingly clear.

“The main player was our goalkeeper. He was great and saved the ball from start to finish. I am happy for him. He has always worked hard and good manners, and he is rewarded.”

Furthermore, the Remparts became the first team this season to close Mavrik Bourque two games in a row.

pick and shovel

Like the series’ first two clashes, the events of Sunday were hotly contested. Remparts took a 2-0 lead in the first half with goals from Xavier Filion and Nicolas Savoie as Antoine Colombian looked bad, but the hosts came back strong in the second half, creating equality thanks to two defenders, Jordan Torini and Zachary Massicott. , to delight the crowded home of 4,512 spectators at the Jervis Auto Center.

Conservative from the start of the series, the Remparts’ first streak scored a well-timed goal when Zachary Boldock moved the ropes, in a power game, at the end of the second half.

“Rosso was very good,” Cats coach Daniel Reno said. “Rimbar was very good, and so are we.” How many times have we said from the start that it’s the little details that will make the difference, but here it is, it’s smaller than the small. There is no space on the ice. »

Analysis agreed with in his interview Patrick Roy.

“If you had told me the Quebec-Choi series would be a pick and a shovel, I’m not sure I would have believed it. You have to earn your space on the ice, skating and both teams defend themselves well. We’re looking at the details to make a difference. In our case, we’re going to have to make Fewer spins and more efficient disc ejection.”

‘We want to end it’

The two teams will meet again this evening and the Remparts will have the opportunity to confirm their first presence in the President’s Cup Final since 2015.

“We’ll have to be strong,” Russo added. “We don’t want a fifth game. We want to finish tomorrow [ce soir] And the men will be ready for it. »

Same story in the case of Bolduc who believes his team can be better than what was shown on Sunday night.

“We want to finish the job because we have no intention of returning to Quebec for the fifth match. Our state of mind is really that we want to play with urgency as we did during the first two terms. The message is clear in the room: We know we can do better and that the hardest game to win will be tomorrow.”
