One day after falling to the Val-d'Or Foreurs, the Lewiston Maineiacs returned the favour.
Pierre-Olivier Morin scored short-handed and added two assists as Lewiston defeated the Foreurs 4-1 in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action Saturday night.
Val-d'Or routed the Maineiacs 7-1 on Friday night for its third win in four games. The Foreurs scored four of those goals on Lewiston starter Adrien Lemay, who was chased from the net midway through the second period and returned in the third after backup Jordan Kennedy allowed three goals on nine shots.
But Lemay regained his composure on Saturday, stopping 35 of the 36 shots he faced while the Maineiacs (9-8-0) built a 2-0 lead on first-period goals from Michael Chaput and Francis Beauvillier. Morin assisted on both markers.
The other QMJHL game was: Montreal 3 P.E.I. 0.
