After a happy streak, things aren’t going so well for the Rocket these days.

Tonight, they lost 6-1 to the Toronto Marlies. But for those of you who watched the game, you’ll agree with me that the result doesn’t represent the game very well.

No, because at the start of the third period, the score was tied 1-1. After the Marlies’ second goal, the chain came off the hook. Jakub Dobes, who was having a hell of a game, was left to his own devices.

He may have finished the game with five goals allowed, but he was very good.

Another who was very good was Logan Mailloux. As usual.

The Rocket’s only representative at the All-Star Game didn’t collect a point, but he was outstanding in the area of physical play. In the second period, he gave Ryan Tverberg a very heavy but legal body check. He then settled the score with an opponent who didn’t appreciate the hit.

The latter received a minor investigator’s penalty.

Obviously, the 6-1 loss hurt for a team in the thick of the playoff race, but the injury to Emil Heineman added fuel to the fire.

During a sequence, the forward hurt his back and struggled to get back to the bench. After staying there for a few seconds, he finally left for the dressing room and the Rocket subsequently confirmed that his game was over.

In 20 games with Laval this season, the maverick collected 15 points.

If Jean-François Houle’s team is to have any hope of making the playoffs, they’ll need Emil Heineman in top form. We’ll have updates on his condition in the next few days, but let’s hope it’s nothing too serious.

Laval is now in last place in its section. Fortunately, the division is very tight; the team is only one point away from the playoffs. They’ll be back in action tomorrow against the same Marlies.
