Sogaard earns second shutout as Sens pick up seventh straight victory 

January 10, 2024

BELLEVILLE, ON – The Belleville Senators are one win away from tying a franchise record, as they’ve picked up their seventh consecutive victory, with a 4-0 shutout over the Manitoba Moose at CAA Arena on Wednesday night. It was Belleville’s third straight victory over Manitoba, after taking both games from the Moose in Winnipeg over the weekend.

It took until late in the second period for Belleville to start the scoring when Josh Currie jumped on a loose puck that had bounced off a defender and caught Manitoba goaltender Colin Delia out of position. Manitoba came out with a big push in the first two minutes of the second period, but took a penalty and Egor Sokolov made it 2-0 with a power play marker at 2:49 of the final frame. Cole Reinhardt would count less than a minute later, finishing off a beautiful pass from Boko Imama, to make it 3-0 and Sokolov would add an empty netter to round out the scoring.

Mads Sogaard was outstanding for the Senators, picking up his second shutout of the season and the second of his AHL career.

Belleville Sens Head Coach Dave Bell on tonight’s game:

“I thought we played real well sometimes and I thought we got loose sometimes. So, the fact that we were able to recover from the spans that we weren’t very good was a good thing, but I’d like to be a little more consistent with the puck management.”

Belleville Senators goaltender Mads Sogaard on his second shutout:

“I’m just playing within myself, not trying to do anything extra and just using my frame as much as possible. The help I had from the guys in front of me made it a whole lot easier and it was a good feeling to get it done. But it’s because of those guys in there, the way they played and the amount of shots they blocked. It was a real treat to be back there.”
