HEADLINE: Gagne scored and scored and scored in shootout loss


Gee-Gees third-year right wing Keven Gagne had his first Canadian Interuniversity Sport hat-trick spoiled Sunday afternoon by second-year right wing Nicolas Lafontaine’s shootout winner as uOttawa men’s hockey fell at Concordia 5-4.

Gagne doubled his season goal total to six but the third-place Stingers still managed a seven-point cushion on uOttawa in the OUA Far East by handing the Gee-Gees a third consecutive defeat.

“Still, an important point to get,” said Gee-Gees head coach Dave Leger.

Gagne scored short-handed to open the scoring at 4:15 of the first period, added a powerplay goal five minutes later, and later sent the game to overtime with his second powerplay goal at 14:41 of the third period to tie the game 4-4.

The Gee-Gees trailed 3-2 heading into the third period.

Gee-Gees fourth-year centre Dan McDonald also scored a third-period powerplay for uOttawa.

Lafontaine also had a short-handed goal at the 36-second mark of the third period for the Stingers, which beat the Gee-Gees for just the seventh time in 20 meetings over the last five seasons.

Gee-Gees second-year right wing Ryne Gove was taken to hospital but later released after a second-period cross-check.
