It may be too little, too late, but the Halifax Mooseheads are hoping to get on a little bit of a roll.

The Mooseheads, whose playoff hopes took a big hit with a recent eight-game losing streak, are coming off back-to-back wins at the Metro Centre and continue a five-game home-stand tonight at 7 p.m. against the Shawinigan Cataractes.

After locking down the QMJHL’s most potent offensive attack on Sunday with a 2-1 win over the Drummondville Volti-geurs, the Mooseheads are as confident as ever.

“Everybody in our room is thinking we can take on anybody now,” said Mooseheads goalie Peter Delmas, who has allowed just two goals on 55 shots in the victories. “That’s a good mentality to have, especially with a group of young guys.”

Delmas, a 19-year-old from Bedford acquired from the Quebec Remparts two weeks ago, was named the Q’s defensive player of the week yesterday for his strong play.

The Mooseheads’ only winning streak of the season was a four-game stretch at the start of November. In fact, that’s the only other time the last-place club has so much as won back-to-back games. So this week provides a rare opportunity.

With a 10-33-3 record, the Mooseheads trail the 14th-place Lewiston Maineiacs by 11 points in their bid for the final playoff spot. There are only 22 games remaining.

It may be as much about pride as it is about a playoff spot.

“I think the guys have realized we need to take advantage of these last couple of weeks we have,” Delmas said. “We want to try and get better and show we’re not a last-place team, show we’re better than most people think we are.”

The Cataractes, 21-19-6, are in the middle of the pack.
