Alexandria's CCHL2 Glens hit the road tonight for game 4 of their playoff series against the Ottawa Canadians. The boys tied the series last night at the Palace, with a 2-1 overtime victory.
The March 9 game saw the Glens Mikael Gibault assessed a major penalty for boarding in the second period. The infraction was called after some debate amongst the officials, while the Ottawa player was tended to by his team's trainer.
The News has learned that the league subsequently stepped in to upgrade the penalty to a hit from behind and added a one-game suspension. Gibault is expected to sit out tonight, as a result.
Game 6 is scheduled for Monday night, back at the Glengarry Sports Palace, starting at 8 p.m.
The Alexandria Glens scored a huge 7-1 victory on the road against the Ottawa Canadians today in game 1 of their CCHL2 playoff series, with the boys set to return to home ice at the Glengarry Sports Palace on Sunday afternoon.
