MONCTON, N.B. - The Halifax Mooseheads defeated the Moncton Wildcats 4-2 Friday night.

But the Herd answered right back as Raphael Lavoie and Max Trepanier tied the game up heading into the second.
After a scoreless second period, Benoit Olivier-Groulx put Halifax up 3-2 early in the third period.
Lavoie iced the game with his second of the evening to make it a 4-2 final in Halifax's favour.
