Houle announced that veteran Kevin Poulin was going to start Game 1 for the Laval Rocket, there wasn’t much argument that it was a poor choice. Poulin posted a strong 18-8-3 record with a .920 save percentage and 2.34 goals-against average during the season. He was arguably the biggest reason that the Rocket were able to make the playoffs. Houle had also made it clear he was going to split the back-to-back opening games of the series against the Syracuse Crunch. Poulin didn’t play poorly, but the Rocket dropped the first game 5-3, and in Game 2 the net was turned

Laval advances on Gabriel Bourque’s OT goal

Photo by Minas Panagiotakis/Getty ImagesWith their backs against the wall, the Rocket pulled off a stunning comeback to advance in the playoffs. After a shutout loss in Game 4 on home ice in Laval, the Rocket faced a true do-or-die situation in Syracuse for Game 5. They had to handle the crucial game without the services of Nate Schnarr, who was initial a game-time decision, and deemed unable to make the starting lineup. With Schnarr out, J.-F. Houle opted for an 11-forward, seven-defenceman alignment once more. Peter Abbandonato drew in as the third-line centre, while Kevin Roy replaced Devante Smith-Pelly on the makeshift fourth long alongside Joël Teasdale. For the Crunch it was surprisingly Maxime Lagace gettin
