The second half of the inaugural 2013-14 season of the Ligue Fédérale des As began Saturday with two uplifting games. The first set the Cabane Express against the Billy Kun Czechers, who overcame a deficit of two goals to defeat L'Express at the last minute. The Express had a solid lineup for the game and once again saw a lead evaporate. When will the Men in Black finally have a convincing win?
In the second encounter of the evening, the Rouge Horizon Tomahawks met the ever-dangerous Bifteck Avengers in an entertaining game, if we rely on the reaction of the "crowd" present to cheer the boys on. One of the more remarkable facts about the evening was that other team members stayed at the rink to encourage the players on the ice, creating a festive atmosphere. Getting back to the game, the Toms built a comfortable lead only to see the Avengers come back, with the crowd providing fuel in the stands. Hopes of a comeback worthy of the famous Habs comeback against the Rangers a few years ago fell flat when the red men added in insurance goal to make the score 6-4, which was the final score. As costumary about a dozen players joined in the usual post-game festivities with a notable guest of honour.
