HALIFAX - The Halifax Mooseheads still have a shot at winning the Maritimes Division title after Friday's 7-4 win over the Moncton Wildcats.

It looked like it was going to be a scoreless first period until Daniil Miromanov and Jakob Pelletier gave Moncton a 2-0, scoring a little over a minute apart.

Raphael Lavoie managed to sneak one minutes later to cut Moncton's lead in half after 20 minutes.

Halifax came out swinging in the second period, with Lavoie, Benoit Olivier-Groulx, Max Fortier and Filip Zadina scoring four consecutive goals to take a comfortable lead.

James Phelan responded with Connor Moynihan scoring shortly after. Phelan eventually netted another one to bring Moncton within two.

But it wasn't enough, as Moynihan netted his second of the evening in the final period to make it a 7-4 final.

With the win and Bathurst's 5-4 OT loss against the Islanders, the Herd still have a shot at heading into the playoffs as division champs.

But in order to do that, they must defeat the Acadie-Bathurst Titan on Saturday in what will be their last game of the regular season.
