Chances to snap longest loosing skid in club history running out for Acadie-Bathurst Titan
Acadie-Bathurst Titan travels to Saint John Thursday for the first of two back-to-back road games against the Sea Dogs.
Though already eliminated from the playoffs, the Titan is trying to snap a 23-game loosing skid, the longest in franchise history, as it inches ever closer to breaking a more than 40-year-old QMJHL record for the longest loosing streak.
That record is currently held by the 1975-76 Shawinigan Dynamos who dropped 27 consecutive games.
But former Captain Jeff Viel tells the Northern Light that loosing games is when hockey players learn the most and that the most important thing is for fans to keep believing in the team.
The 17th-place Sea Dogs won't let the Titan snap its streak without a fight.
Saint John trails the Shawinigan Cataractes by three points as both teams duke it out for one remaining playoff spot.
The Titan have just six games remaining in the regular season.
The club's final two home games will be back-to-back matchups against the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles.
Those games will be played at the KC Irving Centre March 15th and 16th.
