Lucky number 7! The Montreal Juniors won 3 games this weekend to expand their winning streak to 7 games. The team has now won 8 of their last 9.

At home on Friday night, the team enjoyed a come from behind victory and beat the Remparts 5-4 in a shootout.

On Saturday the team headed to Quebec City for a rematch game and managed to win once again, this time in regulation, by a score of 3-2.

On Sunday the Juniors were back at home to host the Baie Comeau Drakkar who are suffering this year and are the last place team in the QMJHL. The Juniors cruised to a 5-3 victory with Louis Leblanc earning 1 goal and 2 assists along the way.

This game marked the first where the Juniors had the option of starting any of their regular players. This is because Louis-Marc Aubry (seen in photo) returned to the lineup after missing over 10 games with a knee injury.

The 6'4" center man finished the game with no points and a -1 plus/minus rating, however it was promising was to see Aubry's success in the face off circle. Aubry won 16/19 face offs (84.2%) which is incredible. This is an area where Montreal can use some improvement hence why it's a positive to see Aubry return to good health.

The Juniors are playing at home against Cape Breton this Thursday morning (nov. 11) at 10:30 before travelling to Gatineau on Saturday (nov. 13) to play against their division rival. They return home to play Sean Couturier and the Drummondville Voltigeurs on Sunday (nov. 14) at 15:00.
