Oshawa earns spot in Memorial Cup semifinal

Defenseman Stephen Desrocher, a prospect for the 2015 NHL Draft, scored at 18:07 of overtime to give the Oshawa Generals a 5-4 victory against the host Quebec Remparts on Sunday at the 2015 Memorial Cup, played at Pepsi Colisee in Quebec City, Quebec.

Oshawa's Cole Cassels (Vancouver Canucks) beat Quebec's Kurt Etchegary on a faceoff on the right side of the Quebec zone, winning the puck back to Desrocher, No. 145 on NHL Central Scouting's final ranking of North American skaters for the 2015 draft. Desrocher gloved the puck, dropped it on his stick, cut around a rushing Etchegary and found space in the right circle. His high shot beat Quebec goaltender Zachary Fucale (Montreal Canadiens) under the crossbar, past his glove.

"All the boys played a great game, and I guess I was the lucky guy to get the final one," Desrocher said, according to The Canadian Press. "I knew I didn't have a shooting lane at first and I tried to get around a guy and just tried to get it on net and it went in."

Lightning's Carle questionable for Game 4

The status of Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Matthew Carle is unknown heading into Game 4 of the Eastern Conference Final against the New York Rangers at Amalie Arena on Friday (8 p.m. ET; NBCSN, CBC, TVA Sports).

"No update," Lightning coach Jon Cooper said Thursday. "What's the line? Day-to-day, but then again, aren't we all?"

Carle left Game 3 at 9:55 of the first period following a collision in the neutral zone with New York Rangers center Derek Stepan. It appeared Carle was trying to go to the bench for a line change as Stepan was curling back to go into the New York zone.

Carle played three shifts totaling 1:36 in the first period. He entered the game averaging 17:34 of ice time in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, and has played in each of Tampa Bay's 16 games. He has two assists and is minus-6.

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.

— U.S. National Junior Team coach Ron Wilson on Auston Matthews, the projected No. 1 pick of the 2016 NHL Draft
