Laval Rocket fans were in large numbers to see David Reinbacher in action for his first game at Place Bell and the young defenseman did not disappoint in an important 2-1 victory over the Belleville Senators on Friday evening. .

The fifth pick in the most recent National Hockey League draft didn’t get a point, but he was on the ice for Brandon Gignac’s game-winning goal midway through the second period. Reinbacher and his blue line partner Tobie Bisson neutralized the visitors’ attack, allowing Sean Farrell and Gignac to escape two on one.

William Trudeau was the Rocket’s other scorer, breaking the ice following just 2:31 in the first period. His throw from an improbable angle surprised goalkeeper Leevi Merilainen, who blamed himself.

The other star of the match was goalkeeper Jakub Dobes, brilliant with 35 saves. He notably blocked 17 pucks during a second period that the Montreal Canadiens’ farm club spent mainly in its zone.

The local favorites only shot 17 times on net. The defenders, however, did their part of the job by paralyzing the Senators for five power plays.

It was a match of capital importance for the ranking of the North section since the “Sens” are breathing down the Rocket’s neck. Laval (70) came within one point of the Toronto Marlies (71) and fourth place following the loss to the representatives of the Queen City. Belleville (66) is losing weight and sees its chances of taking part in the spring ball dwindling.

The two clubs will cross swords once more on Saturday followingnoon. The Rocket have won their last five duels once morest the Ottawa Senators affiliate.
