TROIS-RIVIERES, Que. – The Cornwall River Kings appeared to be in better form Friday after all the uncertainty of the team’s future days ago.
Cornwall skated to a 7-6 shootout loss Friday night in Trois-Rivieres.
It’s the first game since Cornwall-area businessman Steve Moreau bought the team from the league.
Cornwall led 4-3 after one and there were no goals in the second period.
But the Blizzard managed to score three goals in the third and Cornwall answered with two to tie it up at the end of regulation.
Trois-Rivieres’ Maxime Tanguay got one by Loic Lacasse in the shootout.
The River Kings play their next game Saturday night at the Civic Complex at 7:30 p.m. when they host Riviere-du-Loup.
