Bailie made 26 saves on the night as the Gaels started strong and were able to shut down the Voyageurs attack all night long. Two first period power play goals helped Queen’s jump out to an early lead they would not relinquish as they won their third straight game.
The Tricolour came out firing in this one as Ryan Bloom (Calgary) was able to open the scoring just 1:31 into the game on a power play deflection goal off an Eric Ming (Williamstown, Ont.) shot. The power play stayed hot as Queen’s would add another power play marker at 10:46 when Warren Steele (Williamsburg, Ont.) fired a one-timer past Voyageurs goaltender Mackenzie Savard. Queen’s would enter the second period with a 2-0 advantage.
Luke Edwards (Kingston, Ont.) added to the Gaels lead midway through the second period on a weird deflection that found the net off of his body to make the score 3-0 heading into the third period.
Queen’s continued their suffocating style of play in the third period as they were able to keep the Voyageurs off the score sheet and preserve Bailie’s big night. Alex Stothart (Ottawa) would round out the Gaels scoring at 15:14 with a wrist shot that beat Savard for his first of the season.
Bailie picked up the historical win in net for the Gaels while Savard took the loss in net for Laurentian, making 28 saves.
