SHERBROOKE, Que. — Tristan Allard scored the game-winning goal in overtime as the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies handed the Sherbrooke Phoenix their first loss of the season with a 5-4 victory on Thursday.

After going down 4-3 midway through the third period courtesy of back-to-back goals from the Phoenix (4-0-1), Louis-Philippe Fontaine scored 18:31 into the frame to tie it up for Rouyn-Noranda (3-3-0) and send the game to overtime.
