Eric Comrie had his second shutout of the season as the Manitoba Moose opened the six-game homestand with a win.
The Moose scored twice in the first 10 minutes and held on for a 4-0 victory over the visiting Laval Rocket on Thursday at Bell MTS Place.
Cameron Schilling and Alexis D’Aoust scored first period goals to give the Moose an early two-goal lead.
Moose newcomer Jimmy Oligny was given a game misconduct in the first period for being the third man in. He got into a fight with Michael Pezzetta after Kristian Reichel was sent head first into the boards. Skyler McKenzie also received a fighting major during the same stoppage in play after squaring off with Antoine Waked.
