QMJHL Roundup: A look at Saturday's games

The Saint John Sea Dogs continued their winning streak Saturday, topping the Acadie-Bathurst Titan 5-2 in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League for their 17th straight victory.

Nathan Beaulieu, Tomas Jurco, Danick Gauthier and Jonathan Huberdeau had a goal and an assist each as the Sea Dogs extended the longest streak in the Canadian Hockey League this season.

Stephen MacAulay chipped in a single, Maxime Villemaire had two assists and Mathieu Corbeil made 27 saves for the win.

The first place Sea Dogs improved to 47-14-2 in their final home game of the regular season.

Christophe Losier and Christophe Lalancette scored for Bathurst and Robert Steeves made 33 saves in a losing cause as the Titan fell to 29-29-5.

Elsewhere in the QMJHL, it was: Armada 5, Sagueneens 0; Foreurs 4, Oceanic 3 (OT); Tigres 10, Wildcats 0; Olympiques 8, Voltigeurs 2; and Mooseheads 4, Huskies 3.

At Saint John, N.B., Losier opened the scoring on a power play at 16:57 of the first period.

Beaulieu evened things up with a power-play goal of his own at 7:41 of the second. Jurco and Villemaire assisted on the goal, Beaulieu’s 11th of the season.

MacAulay put the Dogs up 2-1 at 10:28, a deflection of a Pierre Durepos shot that was video reviewed.

Jurco added an insurance marker at 16:12 of the second, finishing on a 2-on-1 with Danick Gauthier. It was Jurco’s 30th goal of the year.

The Dogs continued to pad their lead in the third, with Huberdeau striking just 42 seconds into the final frame for his 28th of the year.

Gauthier made it 5-1 at 4:17, with assists from Huberdeau and Kevin Gagne. The Tampa Bay Lightning prospect extended his team-best goals total to 42, four short of Mike Hoffman's team record with five games to play.

Lalancette got the Titan back within three at 8:22, but that was as close as Bathurst could come.

Saint John's next home game will be the President's Cup playoff opener on March 23.

Quote of the Day

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
