Brodeur Wins Game Three With Five Seconds Remaining

Lewiston Takes 2-1 Series Lead 

12 Apr 11 Lewiston, ME (QMJHL) - The Lewiston MAINEiacs gave their fans something to remember on Tuesday night, as they played game three of their best-of-seven series against the Montreal Junior. With 5.2 seconds remaining, Etienne Brodeur potted the rebound of Olivier Dame-Malka's initial shot, lifting the roof of of the Androscoggin Bank Colisee, as the MAINEiacs picked up a 2-1 victory. Lewiston also took a 2-1 lead in the series, earning the win in front of 1,511 fans.

The game was scoreless for the first 36 minutes of play, before Montreal opened the scoring at the 16:02 mark of the second. Trevor Parkes took a pass from Philippe Lefebvre, skated down the left side, and scored on a backhand shot. 45 seconds later, the MAINEiacs responded, tying the score at one. Kirill Kabanov twirled around in the offensive zone, before finding Sam Carrier open in the slot. Carrier skated toward the goal, before ripping a wrist shot glove side on Jean-Francois Berube.

The score stayed tied until the dying seconds of regulation, when Lewiston took the lead for the first time in the game. Olivier Dame-Malka took a shot from the left point that got deflected in the slot. The deflected puck landed on Etienne Brodeur's tape, and Brodeur did the rest, lifting the game winning goal into the top of the cage.

Nicholas Champion was tremendous in goal for the MAINEiacs, stopping 28 of the 29 shots he faced in the win. Jean-Francois Berube took the loss for Montreal, making 17 saves on 19 shots.

The MAINEiacs and Junior will play game four in Lewiston on Wednesday night at 7:00.
