MONCTON, N.B. — Josh Lawrence scored a short-handed goal and also notched an assist as the Saint John Sea Dogs ended their regular season on a 15-game win streak after beating the Moncton Wildcats 4-2 Saturday in the QMJHL.
Lawrence's goal proved to be the game winner and William Dufour scored for Saint John (47-17-4) to end his campaign with a league-best 56 goals.
Vincent Filion made 26 saves in the Moncton loss (28-31-9).
The Wildcats looked to be mounting a comeback in the third period when Brooklyn Kalmikov scored at the 12:22 mark, making the game 3-2 Sea Dogs, but that would be as close as they would get as a Philippe Daoust empty-netter with less than 30 seconds to play put the game to bed.
