Shattering beginnings for Rouen. Their first two games having been postponed, the Dragons played their first match of the season, this Friday night at home against Amiens for the 3rd day. And the Rouennais did not give details, with a large victory (3-0) against the Gothics thanks to goals from Lagace, Chakiachvili and Gueurif, while Matija Pintaric himself immediately offered a shutout thanks to his 17 saves of the evening.

At the same time, Grenoble recorded its first setback, traveling to Angers (6-4). It all happened in the last moments, which saw the two evening heroes Halley and Gaborit (both a double and an assist) allow the Dukes to snatch at the expense of the Burners of Wolves a new victory which allows them to take the lead in the standings. Not illogical knowing that the Angevins had led 4-2 before being joined on goals from Treille and Sauvé.

Cergy-Pontoise, which had won its first two games, indeed fell for the first time, at home against Chamonix (3-1). It must be said that the Pioneers and their excellent goalkeeper Clément Ginier (26 saves) got off to a good start, with two goals scored in the first ten minutes. Angers is ahead of Jokers and Anglet, beaten on penalties by Bordeaux (6-5) at home after a completely crazy match which first saw the Girondins lead 2-0 then the Basques take off (4-2), before a hat-trick from Mulle returned the advantage to the Boxers, who were finally forced into a penalty shoot-out after Pierre-Maxime Poudrier tied everyone five minutes from time. What show !

Total suspense also on the side of Gap, where the locals had to wait until extra time to overcome Mulhouse (3-2). Colotti delivered the Rapaces, while Nice can, for its part, thank its Czechs, since out of the four goals of the Azuréens victory against Briançon (4-2), three were scored by Kopta (doubled) and Popelka.
