Aigles Bleues not taking Tommies lightly

Times & Transcript Article:

Aigles Bleues visit the St. Thomas Tommies at 7 p.m. The Aigles enter tonight's game with a 19-0-2 record for 40 points. The Tommies are with a record of 12-4-5 for 29 points. UdeM is assured a bye in the first round of the playoffs.

"It will be an interesting game," said forward rookie Janie LeBlanc.

"St. Thomas is ranked third and we know we have to play well to beat them," the Balmoral native said. "We practised our skating and shooting and also our system because we had some difficulty against UPEI in our last game. "We will have to play defensive style and take the puck out of our zone before thinking of going to score."

St. Thomas is the only team to defeat Moncton in regulation play this season. Moncton will be short handed as their leading scorer, Marieve Provost, is playing with Team Canada at the World University Games in China.

Thanks to the Times & Transcript for reporting on this game.
