CHARLOTTETOWN - It took a little longer than they would have liked, but then the floodgates opened.

Halifax Mooseheads forward Brent Andrews tries to chip the puck past Charlottetown Islanders goalie Eric Brassard during QMJHL action at the Eastlink Centre on Wednesday night.

After overcoming two one-goal first period deficits, the Halifax Mooseheads found their stride early in the second frame and then fired four unanswered goals to top the Charlottetown Islanders 5-2 before 2,059 fans at the Eastlink Centre on Wednesday night.

“The more it went the better we were,” said head coach Dominique Ducharme. “And our third period was really good, so it was a good road win. Everyone did their part and that’s what we want to see.”

Besides limiting the Islanders to just 13 shots in the final two frames, the Mooseheads, who outshot the home squad 40-26, showcased a collective offensive effort with 11 different players getting on the score sheet.

Forward Luca Ciampini, who’s has five points in his last two games, led the way with a goal and an assist.

“He’s getting on a good stretch,” said Ducharme. “We need everyone at their best and it’s nice to see him gaining confidence like that.”

After surrendering two early goals, Mooseheads netminder Kevin Darveau zeroed in to help lead the Mooseheads to their second straight victory.

“He couldn’t do much on those two first goals,” said Ducharme. “But he was solid after that.”

With the victory, the Mooseheads improve to 26-15-0-1. They’ll begin a three-game home stint against the Moncton Wildcats on Friday.

Andrew Shewfelt, Darcy Ashley, Danny Moynihan and Connor Moynihan rounded out the scoring for the Herd, while Anthony Cortese and Daniel Sprong responded for Charlottetown.
